The 54th running of the “Run to the Clouds” event will take place on June 21, 2014. The historic all-uphill run draws 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.
What’s New in 2013?
Field Has Increased
Every year there is over two thousand runners that sign up for the lottery. Based on the overwhelming interest and our new summit parking plan we have increased the field to 1,300 competitors.
Friday Night Activities Will Be Enhanced
We will once again host the pasta party, but this year tickets will be available for purchase at the dinner. The Hall of Fame ceremony will be streamlined, lasting approximately 30 minutes, 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.
