Ghost Train Trail Races

October 15th and 16th, 2022

Ghost Train is New Hampshire's original 30-Hour Ultramarathon and 100 miler!


All profits go to the Conservation Commissions of Brookline and Milford N.H. Every dollar gets put back into the trails, and returning runners can see the improvement each year! So far this race has raised over $100,000 for trail improvements!

Join us for the 14th annual Ghost Train Rail Trail Race to run 7.5 miles, 15 miles, or 30 hours along the Milford and Brookline rail trail.

Race along the old railroad tracks that were used in the late 19th and early 20th century to ship granite from Milford and ice from Lake Potanipo in Brookline to Massachusetts. The rails themselves were removed for scrap metal during World War II, but a few of the railroad ties are still in the ground and can be seen on the trail.

The trail itself is mostly straight, flat, and well groomed with only one hill. Approximately one mile of each 15-mile out-and-back is paved. The race will consist of one or more 15-mile trail out-and-backs and the trail will be well marked. We don't want you wandering off... After all, the trail is haunted...

If you haven't gotten the impression already - we may also like Halloween.

There is no race day registration available for any of the Ghost Train Trail Races.

There will be no refunds or deferrals, and bibs are non-transferrable. If you register and can't attend for any reason, please consider your entry fee to be a donation to the Conservation Commissions of Brookline and Milford to help maintain and improve the trails. We thank you! Runners on the waitlist would consider it kind of you to withdraw if you can't run the race so that they can then enter.

Are you afraid?

Thank you!

Bring Your Own Cup!

Please plan on bringing a collapsible/reusable cup to the race so we can all work to reduce the generated waste where possible. This may not seem like a huge thing, but most of the waste from Ghost Train is cups! In the TARC tradition, we'd like to minimize our impact on the planet and the landfills as we enjoy the trails.


Pet Policy

No dogs or pets are allowed at Camp Tevya base camp, any aid stations, or any other areas of the course. We are sad to say this as we love all animals, but our insurance doesn't cover pet incidents and with hundreds of runners, pacers, crews, volunteers and families we would hate for there to be any mishaps between pets and people. (And we'd hate for any pets to be eaten by random demigorgon)

Licensed service dogs are welcomed per state and federal laws and guidelines
