Parking

As you enter Whiteface Resort there is a main parking lot prior to the bridge and at the base of the flags to the right that we'd prefer entrants use.

Spectating

Crews/spectators are welcome to hike up onto the mountain as they wish. The Cloudsplitter Gondola will be running but for an additional fee for non-entrants.

FAQ's:

  • Race-Day Registration?
    • Yes, hour before each race on Saturday morning, $10 more than pre-reg
  • Poles?
    • Yes, you may use poles, but be mindful of runners around you
  • Electrolyte drink on course?
    • Tailwind Nutrition
  • Bathrooms on course?
    • Only at / inside the base lodge
  • Post-Race Food?
    • While we somewhat made it work in prior years, we’re not going with provided post-race food this year. In the one-day format we have a projected finisher spread of 7 hours, and at two different locations (base and summit). The lodge café should be open unless the weather is atrocious, so plan accordingly.
