Sugarloaf Mountain Athletic Club, Inc., based in Western Massachusetts, serves Hampden, Hampshire and Franklin Counties. We are happy to post information about events held within these three counties. Note that there is a $15 fee for listing of your race.
Contact David Martula to inquire about having your race posted on the SMAC site.

Note: We feel a professionally-maintained website is the best way to communicate efficiently and effectively with the local running community. We provide this specific service as part of our mission to support area running. Doing so, however, comes at a cost to the Club. As a result, we decided to charge a fee to partially offset this cost. We hope you will understand our position. If you would like to speak with someone about this policy, please contact: David Martula.
