Name: 2nd Annual Bretton Woods Fell Race
Summary: Popular in the UK, Fell Running is a combination of mountain racing and orienteering that takes racers through off-road terrain with challenging elevation changes. Essentially, there are a number of "checkpoints" spread out over the mountain that competitors have to navigate in specific order. There are no course markings and no specific path to which the checkpoints have to be reached so this race is all about planning the best route and speed. This race will start and finish at the bottom of the mountain, what happens in between is mostly determined by you as long as your are hitting certain coordinates along the way.
Dates: July 27-28

Opening Days Just Ahead for Many White Mountains Attractions
North Woodstock, N.H. 2013 The sixteen major attractions located throughout New Hampshire's White Mountains Region are getting ready to open their doors. In addition to the usual preparations for the upcoming tourism season, many of these family-friendly attractions are introducing new rides, outdoor adventures and improvements for 2013.
"The interest in summer activities has already started, so it's great to see the attractions starting to open their doors," said Jayne O'Connor, President of the White Mountains Attractions Association. "There's a lot of pent-up demand for getting out in the mountains once the weather turns warm."
Several of the parks are open already, including The Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway, which is running train rides daily now, and looking forward to two July visits from Thomas the Tank Engine. The Flume Gorge in Franconia Notch is also now open daily, with a mix of wildflowers and winter ice along the walk. In North Woodstock, Lost River Gorge & Boulder Caves opens for the season daily on May 10th, with an expanded schedule of evening Lantern Tours through the caves starting Memorial Day weekend.
Other new features include a newly opened cave on the tour at Polar Caves Park on Route 25 in Rumney, now open daily; and at the Mount Washington Cog Railway, the crew is building its final environmentally-friendly bio-diesel locomotive. The Cog is open weekends for now and will run a daily schedule starting May 25. Also on Mount Washington, the Auto Road in Pinkham Notch is open daily for guided tours aboard the Auto Road's Stages (passenger vans). The tours have been extended this year, giving visitors a full hour to explore the top of the Northeast's highest peak.
For thrill-seeking water fun, there's a new slide at Whale's Tale Water Park in Lincoln, called Poseidon's Voyage, which will feature a 54 ft. drop from the top and a super loop midway. Whale's Tale opens daily starting June 5. Santa's Village in Jefferson will also be adding three new waterslides to its water park area, and renovating some of the public areas. Glen's famous Story Land will open weekends May 25-June 9, then daily, with a magic show added to their entertainment line-up.
