This is not a race, it is a challenge. There is a 9-hour window, weather and conditions permitting, to complete the 100K, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (unless all participants still entered complete the 100K prior to 4:30 p.m.).
48 runs in under 9 hours. This equates to 11 minutes and 15 seconds per run. The lift can reach the summit in less than 7 minutes, which leaves almost 4.5 minutes to complete each run. This is plenty of time to ski down the mountain in a safe controlled manner, for the duration of the day, and reach the 100K mark. This is not an all day downhill type race and anyone deemed to be endangering themselves or others will be removed from the challenge at the discretion of our staff. Participants will be allowed to complete a maximum of 50 runs and will be required to stop for the day when that total is reached.
This is a charity event that supports Make-A-Wish of New Hampshire.
