We challenge you to climb the highest peak in Mineral County, Nevada, as a tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11. This is a rare opportunity to climb 17 miles of some of the most pristine lands in the region and ascend 7000 feet to the summit of Mt. Grant. When you reach the peak you will receive finisher's award, recognition on the website and a breathtaking view at 11,239 feet. The location for the 9/11 Challenge is situated in the high desert of Nevada and near the community of Hawthorne; known as "America's Patriotic Home." Proceeds from this event will benefit the VFW Veteran's Park.
