Moat Mountain Presents 24 Hours at Great Glen

Mount Washington Auto Road &

Great Glen Trails

1 Mount Washington Auto Road

Gorham, NH 03581


For two decades, people from across the country traveled to the base of Mt. Washington in Pinkham Notch New Hampshire to participate in the 24 Hours of Great Glen (24HOGG) mountain bike race. The first of its kind in New England, the 24HOGG was based on the famed 24 Hours of Canaan in W. Virginia. On a specially designed course at Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center, the 24HOGG started with a modest 11 teams in 1995, and steadily grew with the last race featuring more than 180 teams and 500 participants.

After a 5-year hiatus, in 2020 we welcome back our mountain bike community that has been imploring Great Glen Trails Outdoor center to revive this beloved family-friendly event. With a theme of “Back to the Land of Oz”, based on the classic Wizard of Oz, 2020 will boast a celebration of mountain bike culture with camping and community, bike expo, friendly contests, costumes, music, and food trucks. Festivities also include the 24 Minutes of Great Glen for the kids which had over 80 participants in 2015.

From expert riders to amateur racers and newbies, the 24HOGG long attracted a broad range of competitors and 2020 will continue that tradition. Riders will spend 24 hours challenging the race course around Great Glen on both packed gravel carriage roads and merciless single track. Some tackle the course with teams of family and friends, some choose to challenge alone. 

Join us as we journey back to OZ!
