About The Race
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.
No matter why you came, for everyone 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! In addition, through collaboration with Northeast Delta Dental, further contributions can be made to support children’s oral health in Vermont through the Vermont Head Start Tooth Tutor Program during the online registration process.
If you’re not a runner or mountain biker, hiking is the perfect way to experience this beautiful course, enjoy the company of friends, and be inspired by their effort and yours. Regardless of how you participate, we promise that the Northeast Delta Dental Race to the Top of Vermont will be one of the most challenging and fulfilling days you experience all season long.
