Event details and schedule

The Allegheny Ascent is a challenging metric century which guarantees more than 5,000 feet of climbing through the beautiful Allegheny Mountains.  Shaded climbs on seldom-traveled rural roads featuring pristine forests, streams and wildlife. Refreshing descents are the reward for the long climbs.
