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!

Local time: 2:54 AM
You must sign this to race. If you do not you will be turned away.
2) 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.
