To qualify for the Top Notch wave (the first wave of six) the following apply: THE previous year MWARBH or Newton’s Revenge RACE time of 1:20 or less or be a CAT 1, 2, or PRO.  There are NO EXCEPTIONS! The race is open to anyone fit enough for the challenge.

 Motorized bikes are not allowed in the MWARBH.

Helmets are mandatory for all racers.


 Cyclists who have raced Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb for Tin Mountain Conservation Center the prior 5 or more races qualify for early registration (pre-reg). During the pre-registration period, entry will be passcode protected.

Any violations of early registration may result in termination of registration. The day of open registration (as nearest to 8am EST), that passcode will be lifted.

MWARBH will be adopting the USAC standard of calculating results based on race age (your age on 12/31/2016), vs. your age on race day. Many of you have suggested this change in the past, and in an effort to improve your racing experience and to align ourselves with national standards, we’ve decided to make the change. That said, all historical results will remain in tact, for all categories including age groups, until a new corresponding record is set.

We’ve also assumed the responsibility of modifying your age groups appropriately in the registration database, since this change has come after you registered and selected your age group during registration. There is nothing that you need to do or to worry about; we’ve taken care of it for you!

Registered Hillclimbers who do not attend the race forfeit all merchandise UNLESS arrangements are made prior to the race.

Riders who have registered for the Hillclimb may not trade, sell, or exchange their registration with anyone else without the expressed permission of TMCC.

Motorized bikes are not permitted in the MWARBH.

The minimum age requirement for the race is 14 years old at the time of Jan.1st. Race directors Jotham Oliver and the Auto Road can be contacted for exemptions, but in the end their decision is final.

Please make sure you understand our Disclaimers and Policies before you register for this event. There will be NO exceptions.

Weather Date? Conditions to Postpone or Cancel Race

Please understand you are considering participating in a race where the venue is Mount Washington, which is noted for having very challenging weather conditions.

What does “Weather Date” mean? We will move the race to the Weather Date if the following conditions are reported on the road and summit the morning of race day – ICE, SNOW, VERY HIGH WINDS and HARD DRIVING RAIN.

We will stop the race if conditions are deemed unsafe for the riders in the race or cars heading down. We will not cancel the race for “uncomfortable” conditions.
