Mount Equinox Annual Hillclimb

Mount Equinox

About this event

Save $25 if you enter by July 27!

The success of the Mt. Equinox Hill Climb can be judged not only by the number of returning racers each year but also by the fact that it is marked as the event with the greatest attendance by significant others. No wonder subscription fills fast early on.

Drive in the tracks of the greats - John Fitch, Bill Milliken, Cunningham, Shelby and Dreyfus to name just a few. 

A five-mile, adult roller coaster that climbs 3200 feet. Experience cresting “the saddle” full throttle as your car hurtles seemingly into a cloud while testing the true meaning of the “pucker effect”. 

There will be a worthy entourage of eager course marshals choosing the winner of the Dreyfus Cup. 

All this and a great dinner at the Arlington Inn on Saturday night (Note: dinner not included in entry fee.)

  • Equinox Driver's Club car badges will be awarded to first-timers.
  • Entrants will receive a complete information package in advance of the event.
