June 30 – July 3rd, 2022, Pittsfield Vermont
Register for the Death Race


The Peak Races Death Race is the world’s toughest race. Period. Founder and CEO Joe De Sena says it’s not up for debate and he’ll do whatever is necessary to keep it that way. “I’m going to take things up a notch so that there’s never a discussion again.” Named the “Death Race,” it is a celebration of human potential.  The most difficult race in the world, not only for its physically demanding challenges but also for those designed to frustrate and confuse you.

In 2018 racers faced 3,000 burpees, and all night trek over the infamous Bloodroot Gap, a 30,000-foot rope pull, and a Guinness World Record claiming 12-hour crawl under barbed wire.  Expect the unexpected in 2022, but be sure more records and spirits will be broken.

This race will change your life if you are courageous enough to commit today.
