The North Face Race to the Top of Vermont has been called The Hardest Race Anyone Can Do! That may not be 100% accurate, however, every August the North Face Race To The Top Of Vermont does draw as many as 800 hikers, mountain bikers, and runners from across the U.S. and Canada to climb Mount Mansfield, Vermonts highest peak, in Stowe, Vermont. The course climbs up the historic Toll Road, is 4.3 miles in length and climbs 2564 ft. For some its all about trying to achieve the fastest time up this tough 4.3 mile course. For others they come to challenge themselves, compete against their friends, and to enjoy the spectacular views. 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.  Visit our website at to register today!

Course Information:
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 Smugglers 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 degrees 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. Below you can view of map of the course and the elevation profile.
