Participants of this race portion will be joining the 100 mile snowshoe racers. “Death Division” runners will start Friday, February 28th at 8:00 a.m. and have 24 hours to complete the 100 miles. At the end of each 6.5 mile lap participants will have to complete a challenge before moving on to their next lap.

The participant with the most laps completed by Saturday, March 1st at 8:00 a.m. will be the winner.

Cold. It's Vermont in March. People still ski in May so you could even see some snow. Please watch the weather leading up to the race and plan accordingly. Expect cold temps.
We will have a checkpoint at the top of the mountain with minimal aid and we'll do the same at the start/finish. We will have something warm at each aid station and something warm when you finish. If there is anything particular that you like please bring it.
We will have a tent set up and you can leave bags with food and clothes at the start/finish.
We have parking at the Amee Farm Lodge on route 100. There will be Event Parking signs and a designated parking area. The lot may fill and if it does you will be directed 1 mile away from Amee Farm to a lot which has been cleared specifically for overflow parking. Please park in designated areas.
