This year we are excited to celebrate our 12th annual Elijah’s Race. Elijah started this race in 2005 to benefit the students of Monadnock Regional High School . He was an elementary Physical Education teacher in the district and a coach for the track team. He grew up in Swanzey and was an all-star athlete for MRHS. His life was cut short just days prior to his 3rd annual Swanzey Covered Bridges ½ Marathon. Local community members and school booster members took over the race organization. His dream continues with having a race on Labor Day weekend that benefits the students of his alma mater.
Run through four scenic covered bridges on your way to completing a 13.1 mile loop in Swanzey, NH.
The Relay’s first leg is 6 miles through 3 of the covered bridges and the 2nd leg continues the last 7.1 miles through the 4th covered bridge.
Transportation will be provided to and from relay transition point.
