Loon Mountain Race

Over the years the Loon Mountain Race has developed quite a following. The reputation as one of the country’s toughest mountain races is due in large part to the kilometer ascent of North Peak via the black diamond trail known as Upper Walking Boss. ‘The Boss’, as it’s affectionately known, is roughly a kilometer of grassy slope with angles that exceed a dizzying 40% grade!

Please sign the loon mountain resort waiver:

Must register before May 31st to receive a Loon Mountain Race Tech Tee. U20 Means Under 20. You NEED to be under 20 on race day for this category.


You must sign this to race. If you do not, you will be turned away.

Prize Purse

The Upper Walking Boss Challenge is presented by Northeast Delta Dental.

$1500 in Prize Money will be distributed to Top 3 Men and Women on UWB

We’ll have a timing mat at the bottom of UWB and at the top at the finish line.
Three fastest times for both genders will win these premes:
1st $400
2nd $250
3rd $100

Spectators are allowed and the Gondola will start running at 7:30am. Tickets for the Gondola can be purchased at the Octagon Ticket Lodge Window.

Down the Mountain

How do we get down the mountain?
Just like in previous years the Gondola is an option. If you have done this race before, you know that the gondola line is long....and riding in a gondola with 3 other sweaty runners isn't a blast. So this year we will be marking the Service Road. If you would like a 1.5 mile run down a dirt road after the race this is now another option. Please stay off the Downhill mtn bike trails and yield to Mountain bikes


The Lot opens at 6am. There will be Loon Mountain Resort employees directing participants on where to park.
