Peak Race Series

The Peak Races series was created by ultra-athletes who wanted to wanted to turn coal into diamonds.  To do that, they created 5 insane ultra-endurance events here in central Vermont.  They believe that by completing one race (and for the insane every/all)  in one year, the athletes will end the year in amazing shape…and live longer too!

We are a Resolve Factory.

Mr. Churchill was an optimist when he said, “I have nothing to offer, but blood, toil, tears and sweat.” He had a great deal more to offer, but as a strong leader he knew the challenges he faced would not be easy.  He knew what all great leaders say know – failure is nothing more than a reason to strengthen resolve. That is what we do in Pittsfield, Vermont.  We are a RESOLVE FACTORY.
