Event Info

The Death Race is the ultimate challenge, designed to present you with the unexpected and the completely insane! Nothing else on earth will challenge you like The Death Race, both mentally and physically.

Every Death Race is it’s own uniquely brutal challenge, no two races are alike. The race, created by Ultra athlete and Spartan Race founder Joe Desena, was developed as a way for athletes to test themselves both mentally and physically. The Death Races take place in the unexpectedly challenging terrain of the Green Mountains in and around Pittsfield, Vermont, and have lasted over 70 hours. We provide no support. We don’t tell you when it starts. We don’t tell you when it ends. We don’t tell you what it will entail. We want you to fail and encourage you to quit at any time.

Obstacle racer Amelia Boone wrote this about the Death Race:

“I recognize that I’ve been extremely fortunate in my racing “career.”
But at some point, we all stumble. We have a bad race. A race finds a weakness. A weakness finds you.

And of any race out there, the Death Race excels at doing this. It’s a game of Russian roulette that we play once or twice (or now three) times a year. It’s unlike any other race: for example, you do Ironmans, you know you are going to be swimming, bking and running. In that order. For a fixed amount of distance. With the Death Race, you never know what may be in store, and sometimes it may not seem like a “race” at all.

And that’s what draws it to us. And that’s how we discover things about ourselves. And that’s why we keep coming back. But that’s also what crushes us.”

The Peak Races series was created by ultra-athletes who wanted to wanted to turn coal into diamonds. To do that, they created 5 insane ultra-endurance events here in central Vermont. They believe that by completing one race (and for the insane every/all) in one year, the athletes will end the year in amazing shape…and live longer too!

  • Race dates are June 30- July 3ish 2022. Exact start time will be communicated prior to all racers via social media outlets.

Race challenges may begin prior to the race start.  They will include the traditional D.R. media challenge which requires a public commitment to the race.   You will receive details via email. We do this to ensure that you show up at the start. On average only 20% of registered racers have the courage to do so.
