PSA from the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup Committee: Raise It Up!

 

Raise it up! That’s what the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup Committee is calling for this year as the 43rd annual running of this dual, pro-style GS race approaches. The Committee met on Monday, February 22, and unanimously decided it’s time for the ladies to raise the hardware, too. Starting at this year’s race, the outright winner of the Men’s Division and Women’s Division will hoist a silver Paul Revere cup at the awards ceremony.

Additionally, three female racers will be inducted into the Challenge Cup Hall-of-Fame, which is on display at the Red Parka Pub in Downtown Glen. The induction will take place on Thursday, March 17, during the Bib Draw on the eve of Race Day.

Sticking to the theme, this year’s race is on track to raising more money than any other year with the help of two additional major sponsors for the 2016 race including nearby Story Land as well as Locust Street Dental Center, based out of Dover, New Hampshire. The two join the extensive list of sponsors for the 43rd annual dual GS race taking place at Attitash Mountain Resort on Friday, March 18. Additional major sponsors include Attitash Mountain Resort, Budweiser, Crest Auto World, Hurricane Racing, Marblehead Graphics, P1 Timing, Pepsi, Settlers Green Outlet Village, SkiChair.com, Southern Wine & Spirits of New England, Sport Thoma and Valley Originals.

“With their support, we hope to break a fundraising goal of $10,000 during this year’s race,” said Terry O’Brien, Race Director and Owner of the Red Parka Pub. “All proceeds from the race go to the Eastern Slope Ski Club, which supports youth ski development programs in the Mt. Washington Valley.”

Male and female racers can register to compete at the Red Parka Pub or online at redparkapub.com or redparkapubchallengecup.com. This is a 21+ event.


The Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup is the longest-running, pro-style dual giant slalom ski race in the United States. Considered the premier New England Amateur ski race, the RPPCC attracts some of the best racers in the region. All proceeds from the race benefit the Eastern Slopes Ski Club, a local organization that funds youth skiing in the Mt. Washington Valley in New Hampshire.

Challenge Cup Committee Pledges $500 To Starting Point Services for Victims of Domestic & Sexual Violence

The Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup Committee met on Monday, February 9, and made the decision to donate $500 of this year’s funds raised from the Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup race to Starting Point Services for Victims of Domestic & Sexual Violence. In addition, $10 from every female registered racers fee will go to the cause.

Fittingly, the Committee agreed that this year’s race hats–which all registered racers and race crew members receive–will be purple, which is the symbolic color for domestic violence awareness.

Registration is now open to all male and female ski racers, age 21+. The 42nd Annual Red Parka Pub Challenge Cup Race takes place at Attitash Mountain Resort on Friday, March 20.
