Be sure to register for The North Face Race to the Top of Vermont before prices go up on August 1st. This race is going to be one you are definitely going to not want to miss! The North Face Race to the Top of Vermont is being held on Sunday, August 28th in beautiful Stowe, Vermont.

The North Face Race To The Top Of Vermont is actually a fundraiser for one of the coolest non-profits in Vermont – The Catamount Trail Association. 100% of the money raised at this event goes to support the Catamount Trail Association and its efforts to protect and preserve the Catamount Trail while also creating opportunities for people to get outside, have fun, and be active during the winter months!

The Catamount Trail is a 300 mile long back-country ski trail that runs the entire length of Vermont from Massachusetts all the way to Canada. It’s totally free to use and is one of Vermont’s most unique recreational assets. From easy cruising through the woods to exhilarating descents in neck deep powder, there’s something for everyone on the Catamount Trail.

The race features both running, walking and biking options and comes complete with a post-race BBQ! This race’s title sponsor is KLMountainshop.com.

The course is 4.3 miles long and climbs 2,564 vertical feet on the famous Mt. Mansfield Toll Road to the summit parking lot. The racecourse begins with a .3 mile section of pavement before changing to gravel and dirt for the last 4 miles. The first 2.7 miles is well shaded while the last 1.6 miles opens up with spectacular views of Smuggler’s Notch and the surrounding Green Mountains. The course begins at an elevation of 1,279 ft and climbs to the summit parking lot at 3,843 ft. Racers will experience a steady incline averaging about 11 percent over the length of the course. At the summit finish area, participants will be rewarded with one of the most beautiful views in New England overlooking three states and Canada.
