The North Face Race to the Top of Vermont has been called
The Hardest Race Everyone Can Do!
This event isn’t only for those individuals that are driven to train 7 days a week or are blessed with outstanding genetics. This is an event for Everyone. Now… that doesn’t mean the Race To The Top is easy. It’s not. It means this course is going to challenge you, but with enough determination you will succeed, you will make it to the Top of Vermont, and we hope you will be inspired by your achievement.
Every August the North Face Race To The Top Of Vermont draws as many as 800 hikers, mountain bikers, and runners from across the U.S. and Canada to climb Mount Mansfield, Vermont’s highest peak located in Stowe, Vermont. The course climbs up the historic 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 challenge themselves, and to enjoy the spectacular views. For non-competitive individuals, hiking is the perfect way to experience this beautiful course, enjoy the company of friends, and be inspired by their effort and yours. Either way, we promise that the Race to the Top of Vermont will be one of the most challenging and fulfilling days you experience all season long.
This year the Catamount Trail Association (CTA) is excited to partner again with The North Store @ KL Sport as the Title Sponsor of the 7th Annual Race To The Top Of Vermont taking place on August 24, 2014. The North Face Store @ KL Sport has long been the place to go when looking for high quality equipment and amazing service. The guys over at KL Sport always bring their A-game and we are fortunate to have their support.
And let’s not forget about the kids! 2014 will mark the third running of the MVP Health Care Run For Fun! This short course race is for children 4-14 years of age and serves as an introduction to the life long sport of running. Every child wins and everyone will receive a custom made medal and a souvenir bib for participating in this fun and exciting event. The MVP Health Care Run For Fun will take place on the Stowe Bike Path, starting at the Rusty Nail at 12:00 noon before the awards ceremony begins.
At the end of the day you can relax, enjoy some music, grab some BBQ and experience the “Best Awards and Raffle in all of Vermont!“
So, there’s only one question left… Are You Tough Enough?
