Former Manchester Central cross country runner Kasie Wallace Enman, the 2011 World Mountain Running champion, will be among a field of elite women runners in the 26th Cranmore Hill Climb in North Conway on Sunday.

The women’s race will start at 8:15 a.m. at the Cranmore Mountain resort on 1 Skimobile Road.

The men’s race will start at 9:15 a.m. Registration will be from 6:30-7:45 a.m. at the resort.

Pre-registration runners can pick up their bib number on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. in the main parking lot.

Enman, a former cross country All-America from Middlebury College and a 1997 graduate of Central, where she also competed in cross country, now lives in Huntington, Vt.

The Cranmore Hill Climb will feature a four-kilometer loop course. The men will run it three times and the women will run it two times.

In September of 2011, Enman won the World Mountain Running Championship title in Albania. She became the first women’s world champion from the United States, winning the race by one minute, eight seconds.

Last July, Enman finished fifth in the Loon Mountain Race in Lincoln. She was 28 seconds shy of earning one of the top four spots on the women’s United States Mountain Running team.

She did qualify for the team in 2010 and 2011. This year, she’s looking to get back on the U.S. team, which will compete in Poland in the 29th World Mountain Running Championships on Sept. 8.

Enmen will run against elite competitors Megan Lizotte of Aspen, Colo., Michele Yates of Littleton, Colo., Megan Kimmel of Denver, Christine Lundy of Sausalito, Calif., Laura Haefeli of Del Norte, Colo., and Morgan Arritola of Ketchum, Idaho.

Kevin Tilton of North Conway, a two time member of the United States Mountain Running Team, is in the men’s field this year. He won the Cranmore Hill Climb in 2008 and 2010.

Tilton will be competing against 2011 World Mountain Running Champions Max King of Bend, Ore., along with former U.S. team members Joseph Gray of Lakewood, Wash., Matt Byrne of Scranton, Pa., Tom Manning of Colorado Springs, Colo., and Ryan Woods of Boone, N.C.

This year’s race will also crown a USA Mountain Championship winner and a NACAC Mountain Running Championships victor.
