EVENT NAME CHANGE 2019 – “Shore 2 Summit AR” relocated in 2015 resulting in the omission of any “Shore” location in the new routes, therefore we have decided to MARKET 2019 event as “Shore 2 Summit AR” and on Race Day REBRAND the event to its new title of “Rugged Peaks AR”. Just the name changes, the course is exact same.
