The historic all-uphill run drew thousands of runners from across New England, throughout the U.S., and from countries as close as Canada and as far away as Kenya, to make the grueling climb to the summit of the highest peak in the Northeast.
As the race begins its second half-century, this challenging annual event is now officially an in-house operation of the Mt. Washington Auto Road, the private organization that owns the ultra-steep 7.6-mile Auto Road where the race is held. The organization will maintain overall ownership and supervision of the event.
Beginning in 2014, ALL individuals registering for the Northeast Delta Dental Mt. Washington Road Race Lottery, will incur a NON-REFUNDABLE fee of $5.00/lottery registration, for entrance into the lottery only. Individuals who are selected to participate in the 2014 Northeast Delta Dental Mt. Washington Road Race will pay the $5.00 lottery fee and an additional $75.00 registration fee, for a total of $80.00.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a fee for entrance into the lottery ONLY and will NOT be refunded to individuals who are not selected to participate in the 2014 Northeast Delta Dental Mt. Washington Road Race.
Every year there is over two thousand runners who sign up for the lottery. Based on the overwhelming interest and our new summit parking plan, in 2013 we were able to increase the field to 1,300 competitors.
Friday Night Activities
Friday night activities will include Bib Pickup only this year as the Hall of Fame ceremony has been moved to just before the awards on Saturday afternoon to allow participants to retire early and maximize their rest in preparation for the race.
Driving and Summit Parking
Two of the most important aspects of the race are, competitors coordinating their trip down the mountain after the finish of the race, and the summit parking plan for race support and spectators. Please read ALL materials related to parking and summit travel here…..it can make a big difference on how your day goes at the mountain.
Team vs. Group Registration
Please bear in mind the difference between team and group registration. If you are signing up for the lottery with friends, use the Group Registration feature…this means your entire group either gets accepted or rejected together. If you are participating as part of a team for the team competition please provide your team information with your registration materials. Click here for more information on the lottery.
