June 27, 2024, 9:59 am

The Vail Recreation District recently issued the following press release on the 48th Dynafit Vail HillClimb on Vail Mountain on Saturday, July 6:

There ain’t no mountain high enough for you and your friends! Hit the trail with the Vail Recreation District on July 6 for the 48th Dynafit Vail HillClimb, the third race in the 2024 Dynafit Vail Trail Running Series. Presented by Vail’s Mountain Haus and named the best trail race by Colorado Runner Magazine twice, this iconic event is one you don’t want to miss!

This race tests local, regional and national runners with a 7.6 mile climb from Vail Village to Mid-Vail. The climb will begin at 7 a.m. in Vail Village, next to Vail’s Mountain Haus, and finish at Mid-Vail after ascending over 2,100 vertical feet. Race participants will follow the historic gravel double-track route that has made this race a favorite among trail running enthusiasts. You can view a course map here, and if you’re feeling bold, you can pre-run the course with the digital app!

Racers can pick up their race numbers or register ahead of time on Friday, July 5 from 

3 to 6 p.m. at Vail’s Mountain Haus. Race day bib pickup and registration will also be available at Vail’s Mountain Haus adjacent to the Covered Bridge starting at 6 a.m. Due to the early Saturday start, we recommend you pick up your bib or register on Friday afternoon.

While you’re at the registration table, pick up a complimentary BAR from BAR-U-EAT to give yourself some needed energy to climb up the hill! You can also pick up Gondola One tickets for any family and friends that want to watch you finish, free of charge! All spectators may ride the gondola from Vail Village to the finish line at Mid-Vail from 7 to 7:30 a.m only. After 7:30 a.m., they would need to wait until the gondola opens to the public at 9:30 a.m. and purchase a ticket. 

After finishing at Mid-Vail, participants can pick up their custom race T-shirt and refuel with 

fruit and celebratory Northside Kitchen donuts. The awards ceremony will take place at Mid-Vail with recognition of top participants in each age division. After the awards, stick around for a chance to win raffle prizes from our sponsors (your bib is your raffle ticket)!

Please park in the Vail Village parking structure; parking is free in the summer. Racers then have a very short walk to the race start.
