THE CHESTERFIELD FUN RUNis an incredible School and Community event that brings out first-timers, some-timers and dedicated athletes.
Our goal is to promote fitness as a lifestyle in our children and among the adults in our beautiful community AND to support the Friends of Chesterfield School, a community organization that works tirelessly for the betterment of our school, and community.
5K RUN/1 MILE WALK
Run or walk through the quiet country roads in beautiful Chesterfield NH. This course meanders past historic farms to the Pisgah Forest before returning to Chesterfield School. The course is slightly hilly but can be accomplished by anyone. The one big hill at the halfway point gives truth to the saying, "Its all downhill from here!" There are two water stops; at the half mile and at the turn around at 1.5 miles.
10K TRAIL RUN
The 10k race begins on country roads and enters the Pisgah Forest where you'll enjoy beautiful scenery and be challenged by an intermediate trail run, up and down several hills. Once entering the Pisgah Forest (mile 1.6) the trail is wide and mostly downhill until the turn at mile 3. Shortly after the turn around, the trail narrows and begins a moderate climb toward Horseshoe road. A large, fairly steep hill at mile 4.25 signals that the end of the trail section is near. At mile 4.6 you return to a country road for the final stretch back to Chesterfield School. There are water stops at 1.5 and 4.5 miles. This is a challenging run with hills and expect rocks and roots and possibly some mud on the trail.
A multi-sport fitness challenge featuring pull-ups, a putting green, army crawl, tire run, a soccer kick and many other challenges. Each station offers a different colored bracelet to anyone who attempts that challenge, try and collect them all!
