The Race to the Summit Half Marathon and 5K is a road race run on a challenging course that winds its way through scenic state forests and reservation land with both distances ending on the summit of Wachusett Mountain by way of its auto road.

Post race, runners will be ferried to the base area by the Wachusett Mountain chair lift courtesy of Wachusett Mountain Ski Area for an awards ceremony followed by Wachusett Mountain hosting its annual Musicfest festival. Paid admission is required for Musicfest details on our arrangements with Wachusett Mountain regarding MusicFest admission will be available shortly.

The combination of a challenging, yet scenic course and post race party at Wachusett Mountain's MusicFest provides the runner with a very unique experience and a great addition to any fall competition bill!

This race is organized by the Marlene A. Mills Foundation which is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization as an authorized affiliate of the Road Runner's Club of America. The purpose of the Marlene A. Mills Foundation is to perpetuate the sense of community involvement and volunteerism so selflessly displayed by Marlene A. Mills during her life. The Event will meet this purpose by promoting, managing, and implementing a running event that raises funds to support The Marlene Mills Memorial Scholarship, The Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and the Martin W. Richard Foundation as well as promoting the sport of running as a healthy lifestyle.
