2000 Mount Summit
Eric Wilkins, last year's champ
The Mount Summit Challenge will be in its 18th year on April 22nd. 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!

A Race with a Reason: 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.
