This past weekend 150 people descended on the Northeast Kingdom to participate in the 2019 Westmore Challenge.
The Challenge is put on by The NorthWoods Stewardship Center, and takes runners/hikers over five mountains, Moose, Hor, Pisgah, Bald, and Haystack for a total distance equivalent of almost a full marathon (26 miles).
There are four levels of difficulty that participants can choose from, an 11.7 mile option, a 15.8 mile option, a 20.5 mile option, and the full 26 miles option.
To read about some local competitors experiences doing the Challenge, see the Express on 10-3-19.
