Kick off summer with a running start at Crystal Mountain's first Half Marathon and 10k race! The North Mitten Half Marathon and 10k is a combination of paved roads, dirt roads and trails. The North Mitten route consists of primarily flat, open trails on Crystal Mountain property and will not climb the mountain. Both races will start and finish at the white slopeside tent near the Crystal Clipper chairlift. This is a great spring race for beginners and experienced runners!
