Race to the Top of Vermont

07:30 am to 01:00 pm Stowe Mountain Resort

Every August the Northeast Delta Dental Race To The Top Of Vermont draws as many as 800 hikers, bikers, and runners from across the U.S. and Canada to climb Mt. Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak. The course climbs up the historic Mansfield Toll Road, is 4.3 miles in length, and climbs 2564 ft. For some it’s all about trying to achieve a fast time up this tough 4.3 mile course. For others… they come to test themselves, and to enjoy the spectacular views. The Northeast Delta Dental Race To The Top Of Vermont is about supporting the Catamount Trail Association and all of the good work they do. This event is their largest fundraiser of the year. So, while you’re out there challenging yourself, know that 100% of the money raised at this event goes to support backcountry skiing and riding here in Vermont!
