Sunday, June 26, 2022 The Mt. Davis Challenge Road Race is a 40/56 mile race that traverses the highest point in Pennsylvania. The course is lollipop style that starts in Confluence, PA and utilizes the hilly back roads of the Mt. Davis area and climbs to an elevation of 3213ft. Once over the top it descends on the eastern side and climbs back up on Savage Road before returning to Conflu- ence. Prolonged climbs, fast descents and some rough road surfaces make this a true challenge. This will be the 9th year for the race, which is promoted by the Confluence Tourism Association. www.visitconfluence.info For more information or questions contact race director Jim Sota at mtdavischallenge@gmail.com or call (814) 926-2840.
