The Summit Foundation is the beneficiary of the Breck Crest Mountain Marathon. Comprised of 10K, Half Marathon and Marathon trail runs, the races are scheduled annually the Sunday of Labor Day weekend in conjunction with The Summit Foundation’s Annual Rubber Duck Races. $5 from each race entry is donated to The Summit Foundation. As the event beneficiary over the past seven years, The Summit Foundation has received $10,500 in proceeds from event promoter Jeff Westcott and his company, Maverick Sports Promotions, as well as event sponsors and participants.
The popular annual event is known for its rugged nature, elevation gain, and incredible scenery.

Each race begins and ends at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge. Entry forms and specific details on this year’s event can be found at www.mavsports.com.
