Over 1,300 runners will test themselves in this legendary, all-uphill road race, drawing athletes from across New England, throughout the U.S., and from countries as close as Canada and as far away as Kenya. Spectators are encouraged to come cheer on the runners from the start/base area and can walk up the Auto Road prior to the start to view the racers on course. A limited number of on-mountain spectator tickets will also be sold on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 7:00 AM in the base lodge. Those spectators will be transported up the Auto Road at 8:00 AM in designated spectator vans. The Auto Road will reopen for regular traffic at approximately 1:30 PM after the conclusion of the race.
The Mount Washington Road Race has been sponsored annually by Northeast Delta Dental since 2001. During that time, the strong partnership between Northeast Delta Dental and the Mt. Washington Auto Road, bolstered by the Auto Road’s ongoing commitment to local communities, has resulted in annual donations totaling over $105,000 to Coos County Family Health Services.
