We are close to halfway through the 2019 MAGP series. The next MAGP race (#7) is the Four on the Fourth is this Thursday in Keene.
The Four on the Forth is a very spirited race with a ton of prizes, music and food. The 4 mile course is relatively flat and starts and finishes on the Cheshire Rail Trail in the center of Keene. To beat the heat, the race starts early in the day; walkers start at 7:30 AM and runners start at 8:00 AM. Start your 4th of July holiday with this popular race in Keene.
On July 27th MAGP #8 is the Run for the Rescue 5k in Jaffrey. This 5K runs half on rail trail and half in a woods trail and is entirely shade. Running in shade can be very important in late July! This race is good for you trail runners or anyone who wants to get off the hard, hot pavement. The Run for the Rescue is administered by and benefits Jaffrey Fire Department.
