STRATTON- As much as leaf-peeping, Brewfest, and hayrides, the North Face Race to the Summit at Stratton Mountain is an annual fall tradition. This year’s race takes place on Sunday, October 7, at 9:30 am, amid the festivities and foliage of Columbus Day weekend.

The course takes racers to the summit via Stratton’s ski trails, ascending two miles before ending near the gondola. Racers will join the likes of triathletes and Olympians who have taken on the challenge, earn four-state views and bragging rights.

Race registration includes a post-race brunch, a T-shirt and a beer ticket for participants over 21, with proceeds benefiting a community charity. Preregistration is available on Active.com for $35, or on the day of for $50 in front of the the North Face Summit Shop from 8 to 9 am. Race starts at 9:30 am in front of the North Face in the Stratton Village. Awards and brunch will follow at 11 am in the main base area.
