The Rangeley Moose Dash 5K course takes advantage of the beautiful varied terrain we have available here at the Trails Center, from wide straight-a-ways to gradual ascent and descents, to some aggressive hill climb/descent opportunities. Views and possible wildlife sightings are included! 

The course is a mix of single track, wide open ski trails, and virgin territory. Because of the amount of snow we receive, the virgin isn’t going to be 100% virgin, otherwise people would be up to their waist in snow. However, we will manage the trails so that a certain portion of them remain ungroomed or untrod for a while before the race. 

Our stadium (bigger than a football field) provides an excellent venue for mass starts and great visibility for an exciting finish. There is a sidehill overlooking the stadium that also provides a great place for spectators. There are several places along the course that are in the vicinity of our yurt lodge that also provide good places for cheering/spectating.
