Mount Equinox Annual Hill Climb

August 10th and 11th, 2019

 

The Mt. Equinox Hill Climb is the Hill Climb with the longest road that has been consecutively run.

The success of the Mt. Equinox Hill Climb can be judged not only by the number of returning racers each year but also by the fact that it is marked as the event with the greatest attendance by significant others. No wonder subscription fills fast early on. For those who have never participated, some personal reflections.

A relaxed group of enthusiasts armed with full picnic regalia lounging amongst a collection of beautiful cars, many prewar, under old growth trees around the old Toll House.  A 17-year-old grandchild of a long time participant dresses in full race gear and tells you she is preparing for next year. A spectator at the foot of the mountain watching vintage cars leaps at the road on take-off like a leopard, saying he has never missed a race in 45 years. Five participants in one weekend break the “Immortal 5”. Four father-son teams.  A now glass smooth surface on the lower 2/3rds of the road that was at one time notorious for assured car destruction. Smiling faces, gourmet lunches. Visit the Equinox Visitor’s Center surrounded by breathtaking views atop the highest peak in the Adirondack chain of the Appalachians followed by a pre-race soiree that runneth over with camaraderie. A worthy entourage of eager course marshals choosing the winner of the Dreyfus Cup. Racing the exact same road course as John Fitch, Bill Milliken, Cunningham, Shelby and Dreyfus to name just a few. Cresting “the saddle” full throttle as your car hurtles seemingly into a cloud while testing the true meaning of the “pucker effect”. Full bore storytelling. A five-mile, adult roller coaster that climbs 3200 feet.

Note: In order to accommodate our volunteers at the Saturday evening banquet at the Arlington Inn, space will be limited.  Reserve your seat early.

Additionally, in order to accommodate our volunteers at the banquet, we have changed the dinner format from a plated dinner, where dinner selections were required in advance, to a buffet. The buffet will contain the options previously available by selection.

If you have any questions, please contact the Event Chair.
