Mount Washington Auto Road, Gorham NH

Race Registration 




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.

Mon, 2/12/18 – Random-selection registration opens.

Mon, 2/26/18 – Random-selection registration closes.

Thurs, 3/1/18 - Selection/rejection emails sent to registrants.

Registration link for the Random-Selection Registration:

Registration Fees: Only selected individuals will be charged a $95.00 registration fee (this fee is inclusive of all administrative, registration and online fees).  Payment details will be provided during the registration process, and will be charged automatically for selected registrants only.

Note: IF YOUR PAYMENT DETAILS CHANGE BETWEEN THE TIME OF REGISTRATION AND SELECTION due to a name change, address change or a change in payment information (due to a lost or stolen credit card), it is imperative that you contact RunReg to provide an alternate payment method: failure to do so will result in exclusion, due to a failed payment.


If you are signing up for the field selection with friends, and want to all be accepted or rejected together, use the Group Registration feature.  Registration "Groups" will be limited to (25) participants.

Note: Please bear in mind the difference between group registration and team association. If you are participating as part of a team for the team scoring competition, you may register as an individual or Group, and will be asked to provide your team information during the registration process. 


Every year dozens of entrants are felled before race day with the unexpected. For this reason, we accommodate for a conservative no show rate during the field selection process.  We have a strict no-refund, no-transfer, and no-deferral policy; we will not grant requests for late entry, refunds or the transferring of numbers.  Should someone be found running in your place on event day, he/she will be disqualified and both you and your replacement runner will be banned from the race in the future.  This violates USATF rules and causes errors in the results. 

If you would like to notify us that you will be unable to participate in the event, you may contact the race director via email.


Absolutely NO unregistered runners are allowed! There has been excellent cooperation in past years; very few individuals try to run unofficially. Please do whatever you can to discourage others from doing this to prevent overcrowding and delayed results. And please don’t allow someone else to use your number (see above). Remember, anyone who finishes is recorded on video tape. Violators will be refused entry to future Mount Washington races. Unofficials are a threat to the future of the race and are not welcome.


The Mt. Washington Auto Road reserves the exclusive right to determine who will participate in the Northeast Delta Dental Mount Washington Road Race.

We will delay the start time, postpone, modify or cancel the race if the following conditions are reported on the road or summit on the morning of race day: ICE, SNOW, VERY HIGH WINDS or HARD DRIVING RAIN. We will stop the race if conditions are deemed unsafe for the runners in the race. We will not cancel the race for “uncomfortable” conditions. You are participating in a race where the venue, Mt. Washington, is noted for having very challenging weather conditions, please come prepared for the weather.

If weather should cause a cancellation on race day, REFUNDS WILL NOT BE GRANTED.  Lunch will not be cancelled, and will serve lunch between 12:00-1:00pm.

Runners who have registered for the Northeast Delta Dental Mount Washington Road Race may not trade, sell, or exchange their registration with any other individual, prior to or on race day.
