Root 66 Series - Landmine Classic Mountain Bike Race

  • Wompatuck State Park Free Street Hingham, MA, 02043 United States

The Landmine Classic is a "don't miss" race. This race features a one-loop course: 7.6 miles for first time racers, 12.5 miles for Cat 3 and Fat Bikes, and 25 miles for Cat 2, Cat 1, and Pro. We also offer a marathon option where you do two 25-miles laps.

Almost entirely on singletrack, this race showcases a great deal of what Wompatuck has to offer trail-wise as well as some of the historic features of the park (including bunkers, blasting walls, etc.) from when the park was used as a military compound. Over the 25 miles you will encounter almost every type of trail situation - rocks, roots, berms, pavement (minimal), fast and slow trails, etc. This course takes you through the best of New England mountain biking!

All of the proceeds from the race go right back to the park. Using proceeds from previous years' races, we were able to reclaim South Field, the site of the race, to make the area a more family friendly, open space to enjoy. We also have opened new trails, resurfaced bridges, and completed general park maintenance with proceeds.
