2014 New England Trail Marathons and Ultras

2014 New England Trail Marathons and Ultras

 

Last year I made a comprehensive list of all the trail marathons and ultras I could find in New England. It was mainly for my own benefit, but it turned out to be a very popular resource for other ultra runners as well, so I’ve updated my list with new information for 2014. Please let me know if I missed anything!
