CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A fall fundraiser to help New Hampshire snowmobile clubs maintain upward of 7,000 trails throughout the state has been canceled this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, the New Hampshire Snowmobile Association said Friday.

The “Race into Winter, New Hampshire Grass Drags and Watercross” was scheduled for Oct. 9-11 in the town of Fremont.

“This is the single largest fundraiser for snowmobiling in New Hampshire and the impact to club budgets will be substantial,” the association said in a news release.

The powersports event has drawn over 40,000 people from the United States and Canada.
