Wachusett Mountain Hillclimb

May 13 2017
Princeton, Massachusetts, USA

The Wachusett Mountain Hillclimb covers 3.7 miles and climbs 1162′. The race will start on Mile Hill Road in Westminster MA near the intersection of Route 140, and finish at the summit of DCR Wachusett Mountain. Rising above the surrounding forest to a height of 2006 feet, Mount Wachusett stands as a unique landmark within the central New England landscape. From the summit, a clear day reveals views of Mt. Monadnock in New Hampshire, the Berkshires to the west, and the Boston skyline to the east.

Ride back down: You will be allowed to ride back down the course after all riders have finished and arrived at the top.  If you need extra clothes at the finish area, there will be a truck that can take your gear bag to top.
