The La Sportiva Mountain Cup is a six-race trail running series that brings participants to some of the most challenging and scenic trails in North America. Since its inception in 2008, the La Sportiva Mountain Cup has attracted elite athletes, back of the pack enthusiasts, and everyone in between to hand-picked locations spanning the country. Whether you're a podium finisher or prefer to toe the line for all day enjoyment, each race is a prize of its own; with the challenge and beauty of any event being a reward in and of itself.
The focus of the 2016 Series will be on maintaining a high quality experience for runners of all abilities on scenic and exciting trail runs across the United States ranging in distances from 10K to marathon. This year, we have refined the calendar to include six incredible races with a cash purse of up to $3,000 at each regional race and a grand prize purse of $10,000 at the North American Mountain Cup Championships at the Jupiter Peak Steeplechase in Park City, Utah.
