SRK Greenway 30th Anniversary

Celebrate the SRK Greenway’s 30th Anniversary with us!

Sunday, Sept. 24th at Winslow State Park
— rain or shine —

Start your celebration with a hike up to the summit of Mount Kearsarge (2,937 ft), the highest peak on the SRK Greenway. Or take a hike to the remote Morey Pond in the Kearsarge Wildlife Management Area. Both group hikes start from the Winslow State Park picnic area at noon.

If you can’t make the group hikes — at least join us for the party at 2pm! All hikers are meant to meet back at the Winslow State Park Pavillion for a picnic/tailgate celebration. This will be a casual, pot-luck affair in the middle of the afternoon. Please bring something to share. All are welcome.

SRK Greenway’s 30th Anniversary

The Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway Coalition was incorporated in 1993. For the past 30 years, this all-volunteer, non-profit organization has maintained a 75-mile trail network offering public access to the mountains, lakes, forests and historical sites of the region. Come celebrate the success of this wonderful local resource!

In the mid 1980’s a small group of creative individuals came together to formulate a plan. This early group included individuals from the Society for the Protection of NH Forests (SPNHF), Lake Sunapee Protective Association (LSPA), Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust (ASLPT) and several other local conservationists. This early group laid the groundwork to create a Hiking Trail network – the Greenway – through ten towns: Andover, Danbury, Goshen, Newbury, New London, Springfield, Sunapee, Sutton, Warner and Wilmot.

Please join us on Sunday, September 24th to honor those early SRK Pioneers who were instrumental in the development of the Greenway. All SRK memorabilia and trail stories are encouraged.

NH Trail Running Lecture — Tom Hooper

At the annual SRK Greenway meeting in March we were fortunate to hear from Tom Hooper, co-founder of Six03 Endurance, who spoke with us after the Potluck Supper on the growth and exciting development of NH Trail Running.

We now have a video recording of that talk to share. Take a look here!

Ragged 75 Stage Race
Tom Hooper and his SIX03 team organize and host the Ragged75 Stage Race each year that circumnavigates the 75-mile SRK Greenway trail network in 3 days. This year’s event will take place August 4, 5, 6. For the 3-day stage race, competitors will run approximately 24 miles in Stage 1 (summiting Mt. Ragged & Mt. Kearsarge), 23 miles in Stage 2 (summiting Mt. Sunapee) and 33 miles in Stage 3. It’s a tough race and known to draw some really great athletes.

There is an option to race just the Stage 3 — which is a 50K (33-miles) starting in Sunapee and finishing at Ragged Mountain Resort and includes approximately 6,300 feet of vertical. This year the USA Track & Field has selected this stage 3 on August 6th as the USATF 50k Trail National Championship for 2023.

Sunapee Scramble
This year USA Track and Field wanted to host the 2023 USATF Mountain Running Championships in New Hampshire. They contacted Six03 about the idea of running the event at Mt Sunapee in the end of April. The Sunapee Scramble is a 2-day event that is sure to draw the fastest trail runners in the country with the hopes to qualify for the US Mountain Running team.
