We would like to share some fast results and photos with you from Climb to the Castle which took place on Sunday, September 24, 2017. This rollerski event starts at the Whiteface Toll Booth, climbing for 5 miles with an average 8% grade up the Memorial Highway to the summit of Whiteface Mountain– New York’s 5th highest peak with an elevation of 4,867 feet.
The race was freestyle technique and athletes were greeted at the finish with a 360-degree panoramic view of the Adirondacks plus the best music in New England from our title sponsor, Reuk Norton—a two (and a half) year old NYSEF prodigy. Reuk has not determined what avenue he will take in the snowsport industry but continues to support Nordic ski races whether it be doing course maintenance or prepping skis during Junior Nationals. When asked how will you get up the toll road this morning, Reuk answered, “the car.” Although he is not ready to climb 5 miles on rollerskis, we expect he will be purchasing a set when grown and ready.
ALSO, A HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS, the race would not be a success without your efforts!
FINALLY, we invite you to relive some moments of Climb to the Castle! Check out photos, here.
Stay tuned for the 2018 Climb to the Castle date!
