Keep an eye on your "body tachometer" because this is a redline race! Climb Whiteface Mountain, #1 with more true vertical gain than any ski resort east of the Rockies.
Compete with some of the best mountain runners in the world for US Sky Running points, or enjoy a gorgeous weekend in the Adirondacks from a summit attraction like no other, or don't choose and do both.
The mountain resort and the town of Wilmington will provide the pitch perfect venue for an amazing weekend of hard efforts, awesome experiences, and the wonderful community which defines the best of trail running. Saturday features post-race festivities with food and awards at the summit. We encourage all entrants to stick around and get loud for every last finisher.
Saturday will also offer (weather/gondola permitting) a kids Sky Climber race. Entrants will be accompanied up the gondola by their parents to the start below the last pitch of the adult VK. With or without their parents they’ll follow the VK line to the summit finish.
Sunday will provide two of the steepest alpine loops you'll find anywhere, in any country, interspersed with a recovery roller loop. Your legs will be pretty thrashed, your lungs pretty worked, but you'll have completed a pretty incredible feat, with your feet!
