Please read first: The wait list for the North Country Trail Run has surpassed 400 to 500 some years. By signing up for the wait list, note the chance of running is very, very small. We open up registration a year in advance in order to pick your distance that is still available and give you that year to train for the race. We hope you will join us and know that once you have run the first year of North Country it is easier to sign-up the next year at the race for those participating. Also note that sometimes runners will sign-up for a different race in the changes they can switched to a closed race as the race draws near. That scenario is also very unlikely because we max out the number of participants in each race. Thank you for understanding.
