Mount Kearsarge Hill Climb

It was a beautiful day on the mountain.  Thanks to all our bikers, sponsors and volunteers for a great event. 
 
 
A beautiful summer morning on August 25th provided the perfect setting for the 6th annual Hopkinton Rotary Mount Kearsarge Hill Climb in Warner, NH. This challenging cycling event consists of an 8 mile climb to the summit parking lot and includes a 3.5 final segment with an 8.7% average grade and a 1,738’ rise. 95 participants came from MA (including Nantucket), ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, VT, plus Nova Scotia and Quebec, Canada. Prizes were awarded to the top 3 men and women finishers.
Following the race a delicious chili lunch was prepared and served by Hopkinton Rotarians to the participants. The Race Director was Hopkinton Rotarian Irv Gordon who originated this event back in 2013.
