The Sunrise Ascent on Mt. Washington and July Mileage Challenge are back for 2021!

Join Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC) on Sunday, August 1st for our most exciting event of the year--The Sunrise Ascent on Mt. Washington! We are planning to hold the hike in-person, pending COVID regulations allow at the time. Also, back by popular demand, we will be holding the July Mileage Challenge with so many awesome prizes up for grabs to reward human-powered recreation and exercise leading up to the ascent of the highest peak in the northeast! 

The July Mileage Challenge is a social, virtual/remote event. Join your team from wherever you may be in the world and log your human-powered miles to support year-round sports, recreation, wellness! Throughout the month of July, we will challenge all who participate to log as many “any which way you can” miles to promote healthy, consistent, human-powered exercise and recreation. Ride, run, walk, paddle, climb, or roll--just be active! Each week will bring new contests and giveaways to incentivize activity throughout the month and hit our goal of more than 24,000 miles in the month! Stay tuned, as we’ll be announcing our weekly challenges ahead of time.

Save the date- August 1st, 2021, the 12th annual Sunrise Ascent!
We are planning an in-person, traditional ascent (hike) up the Mt. Washington Auto Road for the 12th annual Sunrise Ascent on Mount Washington. Additional details to come!
