review of 2016 North Face Endurance Challenge - Northeast Regional.   

5 / 5 Stars


Brutal mountain marathon -- wonderfully brutal. North Face organizes well, marks the trail well, good post-race meal and expo.

Race Tips

First year was mud from 1/4-mile on through the bulk of the race. Be prepared for 26.2 miles of soggy feet. Second year was mostly dry -- it's a roll of the dice.

Logistical Tips (Hotels, Restaurants, Parking, Discounts, etc.)

Arrive early -- everyone is shuttled from parking, Post-race shuttling can get backed up for over an hour wait. Either leave early in the pack or relax and go late.
