100 Brush Mountain Raod
Altoona, PA US 16601

On Sunday, November 1, 2020, runners, hikers, and walkers will join in supporting Veterans by participating in the Sweat For Vets Challenge at the Brush Mountain Sportsmen’s Association in Altoona, Pennsylvania. There will be a 10K and 5K trail race as well as a 5K trail walk for participants to choose from. The 10K race will be a challenging course scaling the Allegheny Mountains. A 5K race and walk will also be conducted in support of local Veterans. All events will begin and finish at the Brush Mountain Sportsmen’s Association located in Pinecroft. 

First race begins at 11 AM.

This year due to Covid-19 you will have the option to do a rolling start to allow everyone to be spread out. Waves will go as follows on November 1st:

5k Run/Walk: Between 11am-Noon

10K Run: Between Noon-1pm

You MUST start in the correct wave or you will not be able to start! If you need to change races the day of, come to the correct wave time and see us at registration.

We are asking the local participants to please pick up their packets Saturday at the race site between noon-3pm to keep from too many congregating at the race (PLEASE do NOT try to run course as it is not open other than race day). 

Those out of town may pick up race day when they arrive for their correct wave. 

We are limiting the race to 200 participants so sign up before it sells out!!! If you miss the cut off, please participate in the virtual option!

Due to Covid-19 we will not be having the postrace party or awards this year. You will receive a postrace snack bag. We also ask for people to not hang out after the race so that we can have our usual fun race day activities again in 2021!!
