Cancelled Event


About the event

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 three options:
1. A 15 mile solo Sky Race which entails two revised Alpine Loops (no more Flume in between) with just under 10,000 feet of gain (and loss).
2. Marshak’s Mountain Race, a single quad and lung crushing 7.5 mile alpine loop with just under 5,000 feet of gain (and loss). In tribute to Nick Marshak who passed away during the 2018 Sky Race running. $5 from each entry in 2020 will go toward a fund that his family feels aligned most with Nick.
3. Kids 1 Mile Mountain Fun Run

What You get

Entry fee includes the event, short sleeve tee, and some sort of finisher's item.

Saturday Night / Sunday Morning

In lieu of a formal post-race food offering (given the MMR finishes mid-morning, and the Sky Race over a spread of hours), and to up the fun / social angle of the weekend, we're mixing it up a bit. We're hoping that enough of you will be interested in upping the Saturday evening social angle for a Saturday night dinner, awards, and connecting session. We're also hoping that a good number of you may be interested in a full weekend including signing on for smaller group hike / runs Sunday morning, potentially brand-led up different local peaks followed by brunch in a local surrounding town.


Yup, you can use them. Just be careful not to jab your fellow entrants.
