Story Land's Sensory Sensitive Weekend

Story Land, Glen NH

Join us for our second annual Sensory Sensitive Weekend! We're adjusting the park to better cater to the autistic community. You can expect park and ride music, announcements and other sound effects to be turned down or off completely, and certain geysers and water features will be turned off. VIP Passes will be available to those who have difficulty waiting in queue lines. Therapy Dogs and representatives from Autism Speaks will be on site. This year we're offering 2 weekends to better accommodate families. We hope you can join us for one!

100-Acre Challenge

100-Acre Wood

Intervale, NH 03845

5K Obstacle Adventure

Saturday, September 28, 2019


100-Acre Wood, Intervale, NH

Registration begins at 9am


Run, Swim, Crawl, Climb & then some!!


Competitors will run, swim, crawl and climb as this 5K challenge takes them into the mud, water, over walls, rock piles and through the wood. It's all in fun and for a good cause with net proceeds benefiting the Believe in Books Literacy Foundation’s Outreach Reading Program.


Individuals and teams of two, three or four are invited and for kids 12 and under there is the Mini Acre Challenge featuring mini obstacles.


Registration is limited to 250 participants.



Instead of paying your registration fee upfront this year, we will set you and your teammates up with your own fundraising page! We will send you the link to your pages so that you can share them with friends and family! If you don't fund raise at least the amount of your registration fee by race day, you will just need to pay the remainder at check-in. We of course would love for you to fund raise as much as possible to help BIBLF get more books into the hands, hearts and homes of young children in the MWV area and beyond!


The kids' race starts at 9:30am. Starting at 10am, heats for the individual competitors and teams of two, three, and four will depart the starting line every 12 minutes. Winners from each category are determined by best time. Awards will be distributed after the last competitor finishes.


Post race food and entertainment TBD.


The Mini Acre Challenge for kids ages 12 and under is for individuals only. Registration is $10. All kids receive a medal. Prizes awarded to the top 3 male and female in each age group.
