Whiteface sits on more true vertical gain than all but 14 other ski resorts in North America and more than any resort east of the Rockies. From its sharp and exposed form to an entrance lined with the rings and flags of the world telling of its place in past and current Olympic activity, Whiteface is iconic. Whether you're keen on throwing down w/ some of the best mountain runners in the world, or whether you're just up for a beautiful weekend in the ADK's, the resort and the town of Wilmington will provide the pitch perfect venue for an amazing weekend of hard efforts, awesome experiences, and the wonderful community which defines the best of trail running. Red Newt Racing, Whiteface Mountain, and the town of Wilmington are stoked to have you.

With more vertical gain and loss per mile than possibly any other race in the United States, Whiteface is burly. Your legs will be reduced to Jello, your lungs worked, but you'll have completed a pretty incredible feet. Sound fun? Yeah, we agree. Be sure to take a moment to stop, look up toward some of the best mountain runners in the world shuffling forward to the finish, back toward fellow entrants of all ages, shapes, and sizes moving toward the summit, and around at the brilliant Adirondack Peaks enveloping you. You don't get any of those sites often…soak it up.

You'll have four tough-to-choose-from options:

  1. A 14.5 mile solo Sky Race which entails two revised Alpine Loops (no more Flume in between) with just under 9,500 feet of gain (and loss). That's a solid day. That's #BeastCoast.
  2. Marshak's Mountain Race, a single quad and lung crushing 7.3 mile alpine loop with 4,800 feet of gain (and loss). In tribute to Nick Marshak who passed away doing what he loved during the running of the 2018 Sky Race. $5 from each entry of each race in 2020 will go toward a fund that his family feels aligned most with Nick.
  3. Returning per your demand, a revised Vertical Kilometer. A point to point endeavor with a gain of 4,200 feet in only 3.7 miles.
  4. Kids 1 Mile Mountain Fun Run
