We wanted to reach out to you today to let you know that we have been in regular contact with our partners for the 2020 Subaru Mt. Washington Hillclimb – Subaru of America and the Mt. Washington Auto Road. As of today, with three plus months until the event, it is our joint desire to hold the Hillclimb as planned on July 9-12, 2020 as long as it is the safe and prudent thing to do.


The health of everyone involved with the Subaru Mt. Washington Hillclimb – competitors, volunteers, spectators, sponsors and organizers - is of the utmost importance to all of us. Therefore, we will continue to consult with local and state officials and will post updates immediately through this email, our web site, and through all Subaru Mt. Washington Hillclimb social media outlets as needed. We will see where we are at the first week of May and let you know our direction at that time.


Most importantly, we wish you and your family good health and safety during these difficult and challenging times. We value your support and want you to know we are thinking of you and we look forward to seeing you at the Mt. Washington Auto Road July 9-12, 2020.

Take care,
