Presented by Acidotic Racing, this race has become a mecca for serious mountain runners across the country.

Named the "Most Competitive Hillclimb" by Runner's World Magazine, this ridiculously tough race will force you to climb over 2,000 vertical feet over the course of six and a half miles. The legendary climb straight up Upper Walking Boss makes another appearance this year, providing one of the toughest, most awe-inspiring kilometers in the fast-growing sport of mountain running. This year, the race will serve as the US Mountain Running Championships!

The race will begin behind the Governor Adams Lodge and travel along the service trails heading up Loon Mountain before veering into the Nordic Ski trail network. After this relatively new section of course it follows a traditional combination of dirt trail, service roads, and ski trails to the Summit Lodge at the top of the Gondola. The course then works its way over and up to the finish line at the summit of North Peak via the infamous Upper Walking Boss black diamond trail.

8 a.m. (men)
