200th Anniversary of The Last Bear Hunt of Gilsum 25k Trail Race

posted Jan 24, 2017, 8:52 AM by Lenoir McDougal

Tentatively scheduled for Saturday, August 19th at 8am.

This trail run celebrates the 200 year anniversary of "The Last Bear Hunt" in Gilsum, New Hampshire. This story is documented in the "History of the Town of Gilsum, New Hampshire 1752-1879" by Silvanus Hayward. Published 1881.

The race retraces (roughly) the route taken by the hunters using the historical information cited in the legend. Runners will start north of Gilsum, head south into the Hammond Hollow woods, through Bear's Den Park, over Boynton Hill reaching "Stoddard Woods", and heading back in the direction of downtown Gilsum ending at Old Man Brewery in Gilsum.

This is a point to point 25k trail race which circuitously winds through Gilsum and showcases its natural beauty and conservation land.
