Take the Up, Down & Around Challenge!
This four-leg adventure race takes you on a 3-mile run on paved and off-road terrain, an 8-mile challenging yet scenic bike race around the mountain, a hike up the mountain and finishes with a ski run to the finish! Do it solo or build a team!
Leg 1 3-mile Run: Starts in the Wachusett Parking lot, travels down the hill into lots 3 and 4, loops back around lot 3 and then retraces the course back to the base area.
Leg 2 Bike Race: Get a bird’s eye view of Princeton and Westminster in this 8–mile scenic ride on a mostly paved, but partially dirt road (1-mile section). You choose what type of bike you want to use!
Leg 3 Summit Climb*: How you get to the summit is up to you… hike, snowshoe, skin… just get there as fast as you can. And enjoy the views along the way.
Leg 4 Ski Run*: There’s no better way to finish the Challenge than on skis. Ski or snowboard down the mountain, turning around control gates to slightly slow your speed. There is no race course this year.
* The hike and ski will both take place on Challenger. The hike will continue all the way to the drop-off of the Minuteman Express Lift where there will be a transition area for the hiker to meet the skier or for individual competitors to change into appropriate gear.
** Individual competitors MUST carry all gear on the hike to the ski transition. Team competitors can have the skier ride the lift to the summit for the transition. Hikers can take the lift back down. (a lift ticket will be provided to teams who choose this option at registration).
