Runners who hope to compete in this year’s Northeast Delta Dental Mount Washington Road Race need to register for the opportunity between February 12 and February 26. Entrants in the race, a grueling 7.6 miles up New Hampshire’s famously steep and scenic Mt. Washington Auto Road, are chosen by a lottery. Lottery registration opens on February 12 at 8 a.m. and closes on February 26 at 11:59 p.m.

Following the close of registration for the lottery, a computer randomly selects the runners who will be entered in the race. The entry fee, charged to those who are selected, is $95. Notification of acceptance or rejection by the lottery will be sent via email to each applicant on March 1st. This year’s race will take place on Saturday, June 16, with a 9 a.m. start.

The Auto Road will OPEN to the public for normal driving operations around 1:30pm.




This historic all-uphill run draws thousands of runners from across New England, throughout the U.S., and from countries as close as Canada and as far away as Kenya, to make the grueling climb to the summit of the highest peak in the Northeast.

As the race begins its second half-century, this challenging annual event is now officially an in-house operation of the Mt. Washington Auto Road, the private organization that owns the ultra-steep 7.6-mile Auto Road where the race is held. The organization maintains overall ownership and supervision of the event.
