• What is the plan for the 2022 Sunrise Ascent?
The Sunrise Ascent will take place in person on July 31, 2022. In addition, we will also run a July Mileage Challenge due to the success and popularity last year. Use the July Mileage Challenge to gear up for the Sunrise Ascent! Adaptive athletes and teammates will participate in remote activities during the entire month of July. Adaptive Athletes and teammates will log their miles and time doing any activity to contribute to their team totals.
• What do you expect the Sunrise Ascent to look like this year?
In the past, teams have left the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road as early as 2:30AM. All teams must complete their ascent by 10:00AM. ASPNC will post more details and information as it becomes available. Roadrunners will be necessary this year to bring any teams hiking up the auto road down. Camping will be available at the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road the night of Saturday, July 30th. Please note, quiet hours will begin at 8PM!
• What does the event schedule look like on Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31?
Stay tuned! We will release an in depth schedule closer to the date!
• When will I get my SAMW T Shirt?
Everyone who registers by July 1st has the option to receive a SAMW moisture wicking T Shirt! These shirts will be available for pick up at the Sunrise Ascent on July 31st.
• We hike up the road, but how do we get down?
To get adaptive athletes and their crew down the Mt. Washington Auto Road, we utilize what we call "Road Runners", volunteers who drive their cars up after sunrise to help shuttle everyone down. We ask that each team help recruit road runners! No one is allowed to walk down the Mt. Washington Auto Road. If you plan to hike down Mt. Washington using one of the trails, you must notify ASPNC ahead of time or let the volunteer coordinating the downhill shuttles!
• I want to volunteer, but I don't want to hike. What are my options?
We have lots of opportunity to volunteer! We need volunteers to help with set up, registration, support along the Auto Road, Road Runners, base camp support and clean up! Please reach out to MiKayla@adaptivesportspartners.org about volunteering.
