It's time for the 29th annual Wildman Biathlon, scheduled for Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 8:00 a.m., rain or shine. So here is the call for all runners and bicyclists to shift their training schedules into high gear and register for this amazing event!
The Wildman Biathlon is a three-part (duathlon) event for teams and individuals. Athletes from all over the United States, Canada and some years even other countries, come to New Hampshire’s White Mountains to compete as an individual or as teams in the Wildman. For decades athletes have been challenging their endurance amid some of the most spectacular scenery in the Northeast. The Wildman Biathlon consists of a 10-K run in the picturesque town of Shelburne, a 22.3 mile bicycle trek through Gorham towards a 3-mile hill climb up the Polecat ski trail to the finish line at the summit of Wildcat Mountain, a presenting sponsor, located in Pinkham Notch.T-shirts are offered to all participants with trophies awarded to overall and category winners along with numerous prizes given away through random drawing.
Each Registrant will also receive 1 meal ticket good for an "après race" pasta meal at Wildcat. Additional meal tickets may be purchased for $7.00. There are a few picnic tables available at the finish. An observation deck is located at the summit of Wildcat Mountain "D." Complete details will be sent with your confirmation packet. Helmets are required of all bicyclists competing.

The Wildman Biathlon is a fundraising event for the Coos County RSVP, a Tri-County CAP sponsored program. RSVP matches individuals age 55 and older with volunteer opportunities at non-profit and public agencies in their communities. Our corps of 375 volunteers donates over 50,000 hours yearly to 60 agencies throughout Coos County. Through a variety of service roles these volunteers are helping to meet community needs. We’re looking forward to a banner year which brings hundreds of people to our area to experience pieces of the Great North Woods.
