What is the Race Up Sunrise Mountain?
The Race Up Sunrise Mountain is a 4.8 mile uphill mass start road race on a closed course. No houses, no driveways, no cars.
Where is Sunrise Mountain?
Sunrise Mountain is in Stokes State Forest, just off Rt. 206, about 6 miles north of the intersection of Rt. 15 and 206 in Augusta. It's the second highest mountain in New Jersey. Map
Will Sunrise Mountain be a good tune-up for the High Point Hill Climb on May 8?
Can I ride the legendary "corkscrew" after the race?
Yes, the 3 mile twisting descent on the closed, one-way road down the other side of Sunrise will take you back to the start in an eight mile loop mostly through Stokes State Forest. Cue sheets will be available.
Is Sunrise Mountain Road the best kept cycling secret in New Jersey?
Locals often wonder why more cyclists don't take advantage of the spectacular views, deserted one-way roads and beautiful scenery. Once you ride it, you'll be back.
Can I win lots of cash?
To win the cash prizes, you have to race the course twice. There will be an A race and a B race. Top finishers from each race will have the option of racing up again in the "repechage." The top three in the rep will win cash prizes. (B=CAT 4,5, women, masters 45+)
Why is it on a Tuesday?
Because the Sussex County Fairgrounds has a huge horse show going on that night.
How much?
The entry fee is $20.00. USCF license required. One day licenses are available and now cost $10.00. Women and juniors free.
Is this going to be fun, or what?
