Mount Mansfield is the highest peak in Vermont, and the Race to the Top of Vermont lays down the challenge of who can reach the ridgeline fastest.
The Catamount Trail Association broadens it reach into the summer with this great event on August 28th.
There are three categories for adults with racers competing in bike & run races, with an additional hike category for the more casual set. The course is the 4.3 mile Toll Road reaching the ridgeline after a vertical gain of 2564 ft.
Kids can also partake in the Youth Run for Fun sponsored by MVP Healthcare. This takes place at the Midway Lodge before the awards ceremony.
