•   When will I get my SAMW T Shirt?
Everyone who registers by June 30th has the option to receive a Sunrise Ascent T Shirt! These shirts will be available for pick up at the Sunrise Ascent on July 30th.

•   We hike up the road, but how do we get down?
To get 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 helps to 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 Adaptive Sports Partners ahead of time.

•   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 kelly@adaptivesportspartners.org about volunteering.
