Join us for the 2nd Annual ECTAthlon, the North Shore Outdoor Event of the Year! There is nothing else like this one. Teams of 4 will start in Bradley Palmer with a 3.5 mile trail run, followed by a 3.8 mile mountain bike ride, a 4 mile horseback ride (an "ideal time course" ), and ending with a 4.4 mile kayak race down the Ipswich River.

The ECTAthlon is a unique way to bring together the diverse users of the trail system in a fun and exciting way, and to highlight the incredible network of trails in our area. The June 2nd date was chosen because it is also National Trails Day!
The race will finish at EBSCO Publishing in downtown Ipswich, where competitors and spectators will enjoy food, drinks and entertainment. Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams. We will also have awards for Highest Combined Age, Lowest Combined Age, and Best Team Attire! Also new to the event this year will be a special award for the best scoring team competing with a mental or physical disability (one or more team member must qualify). For more information on how to participate in this division, please email us.
