Canaan Valley Resort

The Top of The Mountain Challenge is the first of it’s kind. It will be an experience you won’t find anywhere else! Take on altitude and incline as you weave your way through the ski slopes. Starting at Bear Paw, the main lodge of Canaan Valley resort, our course will take you up, down and around this beautiful ski resort using natures obstacles and elevation gain to challenge you lungs and burn your legs. Finishing on top of the mountain at 4280′ you will be greeted by a spectacular view of the whole valley a thousand feet below. Enjoy the view as you leisurely descend on the scenic chairlift where, awaiting you at the bottom will be live music, beer (first ones free to all finishers) and great food and craft vendors. Two race lengths (both finishing at the top) and a kids race allow this to be a full family adventure. (Main race 8 miles, secondary race 4 miles, kids race a little less than a mile.) Bring the entire family and join us for a awesome event and entertaining weekend in Wild Wonderful West Virginia.
