Event notes
In its third year as a Methow Endurance event, the Driveway Butte Hill Climb has long been a testpiece of local and regional endurance athletes. Climbing over 1500ft in just 2.5 miles, it's sure to test your mettle and doesn't bother flirting with features such as "flats".

This year we have two categories: Runner and Backcountry Skier. The "Runner" category will start at 9am in a mass-start format, self-seeded.

In order to compete in the "Backcountry Skier" category, you must complete the entire race with the following equipment:

- Metal-edged backcountry skis or snowboard; skis must utilize either Randonee or Telemark cable bindings
- Backcountry-specific boots (no Nordic racing/touring boots) - Need not be worn during race
- Rescue gear: Shovel and probe
- 1 Liter of water
- Poles

The equipment may be carried in any fashion but must all arrive at the top of the climb. The "Backcountry Skier" category will start at 9:05am, approximately 5 minutes after the runners start.

As with all Methow Endurance events, there will be tasty food and beverages to replenish you after the run, at the start area. Prizes and awards from our sponsors will follow.

Day-of-race registration will be available for a $5 surcharge. Cash or check only at Day-of-race registration, please.
