September 12-13, 2014: The 16th annual REACH THE BEACH NEW HAMPSHIRE RELAY – one of the longest distance running relay races in the United States, this relay race will start at the Cannon Mountain ski area in Franconia, and finish at Hampton Beach. The relay will consist of several twelve-person teams that will rotate through 36 transition areas as they cover the approximate 200 mile distance of the race. Each relay team member will run three legs of varying lengths and difficulty and will cover an average total distance of  about 16.6 miles – about 60% of a marathon’s distance. The runners will rotate in a set order once the race begins and will be obligated to follow this rotation until the final runner Reaches the Beach! The race reaches its halfway point just before passing Weirs Beach on Parade Road (Route 106) during the races’ 17th leg.
