Blizzard Blast 2021

Have you ever done or wanted to do a tough obstacle course race? How about in the snow?!?! On January 30th, United Way will be hosting Nashua’s third annual Blizzard Blast. This is a 3-4 mile winter obstacle course from the Nashua Millyard, along the Nashua River, through Mine Falls Park and back… 20+ obstacles. Professionally timed.

COVID Precautions:
• Socially distanced staggered start times
• Pre-event screening and temperature checks
• Periodic wiping down of obstacles
• Blizzard Blast logo Athletic face masks for all runners
• Hand sanitizing stations associated with all hand-touch obstacles
• Smaller heat sizes

Walk-ons will be taken day of the event, however rates are appx. $15 higher than advance registrations. The registration area for the event is at Train 180 (1 Pine St Ext, Nashua, NH 03060). If you are a “walk on” then you should be at Train 180 about an hour before your desired heat. Heats start at 9 am and run every 15 minutes until 1:30 pm. If you have questions, please email Mike at

VOLUNTEER! If you want to participate, but don’t want to run, join us as a volunteer! Currently, we need 120 volunteers to be Obstacle Monitors to monitor runners’ safety, help them with obstacle instructions, and put parts of obstacles back in place after runners have used them. There will also be other volunteer positions posted soon. Volunteers race for free! Follow the links above to register.
