Join us Saturday, August 22nd for the 5th Annual Flume trail running race. There will be a 5K and 10K option for this rugged backcountry foot race through the Sugarloaf Nordic Trail network as well as a 5K Canicross race, back for the third year.
What is Canicross? Canicross is the sport of running with your dog. Each human runs with one dog that is harnessed (mandatory) and attached to their human at all times. Harnesses are highly recommended over traditional collars, all dogs must be leashed at all times.

There will be one water station along the course as well as one at the finish line, please carry any additional water you (or your pup) may need. We do encourage anyone who would prefer to carry their own water bottles to do so.
Celebrate your accomplishments with a complimentary finish-line beer and snack. Due to current CDC guidelines for public gatherings, we will mail winners their prizes in lieu of an awards ceremony this year.
The Triple Crown
In sports, few titles carry the prestige of "Triple Crown."
Now is your chance to join the ranks of Secretariat and American Pharaoh with a Triple Crown title of your own.
Typically this would require that you successfully complete the Sugarloaf Marathon or 15K, The Flume, and the Uphill Climb. Since we had to cancel the Marathon & 15K due to Covid-19, we have made a slight adjustment.
If you were already registered for the Marathon or 15K prior to the cancellation, and if you successfully complete the Flume on August 22nd, and the Uphill Climb on October 11th, you’ll receive a special, commemorative "Triple Crown" award, and enjoy 10% off registration fees for all three races next year.
