O2X Summit Challenge

September 26, 2014 - September 28, 2014

Starting at the base and ending at the peak, the O2X Summit Challenge at Sunday River is part of a series of running/trekking races held throughout various scenic rugged mountain resorts in New England. Unlike events where you encounter man-made mud pits and constructed high walls in a parking lot, an O2X Summit Challenge at Sunday River will take you through all the obstacles Mother Nature's mountains can provide. Participants compete by running/trekking over mountainous terrain, river crossings, downed trees, and other natural obstacles to feel the exhilaration of crossing the ultimate finish line: Reach the Summit - Rise Beyond!
