The Mt. Summit Challenge will be in its 17th year on April 16th. The race begins in Hopwood on Rt. 40 East and climbs 3.5 miles to the finish line at the top of the Summit. Reaching the Summit is an accomplishment that most can only dream of - it is a race not only about speed, but strength and endurance as well!

The Fayette Striders, along with the Uniontown law firm of Radcliffe, DeHaas & Monaghan and MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) have dedicated the Mt. Summit Challenge to aid in the prevention of drunk driving accidents and deaths. We encourage all runners and walkers to "get high" naturally and not risk their lives and the lives of others by drinking and driving. This year, as in the past, part of the proceeds will go to the Fayette County MADD Community Action Team.

On behalf of the Fayette Striders Running Club and all the sponsors of the Mt Summit Challenge, we wish all the runners and walkers "Good Luck". We hope to see you on April 16th, not only to compete in the race but to support the Fayette County chapter of MADD.
