KING OF THE MOUNTAIN
Birthed, more than 21 years ago, out of a passion for cycling and a love for the community, the King of the Mountain race is truly a unique event. As a race, it provides one of the most unique terrain options in the central Pennsylvania region, while continuing to be one of the central pillars that supports the work of Habitat for Humanity in the Clearfield County area.
Participants can enjoy a challenging, 5 Mile uphill, scenic ride from the base to the Summit of Rockton Mountain, in what is truly a one of a kind race. While at the same time getting to be apart of writing new stories in people's lives, through their support of Habitat for Humanity.

Participants meet at 5615 Park Street, Clearfield. Registration and race preparations are in the Expo 1 Building of the fairgrounds. Race start is on Rt. 322 at base of moutain.
