About the event
Part of the US SkyRunning Series, the Sky Races, presented by Scott Sports and Red Newt Racing, will return to Whiteface on July 9/10. Saturday will see redline ascents (https://vimeo.com/132161518). Sunday will see two of the sharpest vertical ascents and descents that you'll find on any Sky course, anywhere. (https://vimeo.com/135827102) 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. The resort and the town of Wilmington will provide the pitch perfect venue for what should be an amazing weekend of hard efforts, epic experiences, and the wonderful community which defines the best of trail running. Red Newt Racing is stoked to have you.
