ARE YOU READY?
SUMMIT TOUR 2022
The Summit Tour is a once in a lifetime experience that is designed challenge those who are looking to improve themselves. During this event you will not know the people you will have to rely on, what challenges you will have to overcome, or even if you can do it. Our team has created an experience that will help you realize that you are capable of more than you think. This tour is not meant to be a walk in the park or a day at the beach. This tour is meant to be something that will push you to the next level in your life. Our focus is to help those who face mental health challenges walk away with the skills, confidence, and network of supportive people needed to overcome them. Spaces are limited and we typically do not allow repeat attendance to this event. Grab your spot while they are still available!
WHAT IS THE SUMMIT TOUR?
IT IS AN AMAZING, ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE!
This year our tour starts in Price, Utah, where you will check in, sticker up, and cash out on all the awesome swag from our sponsors. This is where you will also meet the people you are sharing this experience with, our amazing pit crew, sponsors, and attendees. Once orientation is over it is time for the fun to begin. The next five days will be full of challenges, victories, tears, smiles, mountains, and most of all summits. Every day will be a mix of training, trails camping and special challenges with one goal in mind: get everyone to the summit. Reaching the summit is not only about physical elevation gain, it is about every step, every problem, every setback. Reaching the summit is about carrying on when everything seems to be an uphill battle. On this tour you'll find an internal summit as well as the 1,300'+ peaks we will be ascending before the close of the event in Ouray, Colorado.

We love our great nation and everything it stands for and we carry the US flag over every inch of distance covered on the entire trip. The veterans are tasked with this responsibility and at the end of the event they award the flag to any guest, or pit crew member they feel earned it the most. The flag is folded at the close of the event while the attendees learn about the 13 folds of the flag, and the symbolism of each fold.
Our veteran guests of honor
Our vets put it all on the line for our freedom and our great nation. We have partnered with Hero For a Day and Trail Hero to sponsor veterans who wish to join us on the tour. Some veterans may not have a rig, so if you have space for a vet in your rig let us know and you may get your entrance fee covered.
- Our veterans help moderate the daily challenges by forming a council. The council allows the veterans to participate in the challenges with their team, and judge the results.
- At the closing ceremonies, the veterans retire the flag and are given the time to give a short address to the attendees of the event. While participation in this is voluntary, usually all of the veterans share their thoughts with us at the close of the event.
- Veterans also participate in the final flag ceremony and award the event flags to whomever they nominate.

The training was excellent and the pit crew was absolutely fantastic. The entire trip was very well planned and I was impressed at how quickly comradery grew amongst strangers. I think everyone had a great time.Ron MitchellChef
This trip was all about change, from scenery, to our own perspectives on mental challenges, nothing was left unchallenged and unchanged. I had the opportunity to participate as a member of the pit crew and I'm 10 times more confident in Racing Anxiety as an organization in making meaningful differences in the lives of people. To have a trip planned with such amazing views, trails and conversations, along with backup plans for the backup plan, every possible scenario was prepared for. I can't wait to see what Summit Tour 2022 brings.Landen BigelowWhat I didn't know I needed
This trip was a dream come true for me. Getting to know the folks that went was the best part for me. I loved coming together and seeing a bunch of total strangers becoming a team in less than a week. The trails we hit were breathtaking and fun for all levels of off roading. The amount of comradery and support from the group was awesome and I am still in touch with the people who went on the group.Tapley MitchellPit Crew
The Summit Tour is an amazing experience you don't want to miss. I was lucky enough to go on the last two and had an amazing experience both times. The people there are amazing and the teamwork and support I saw from people I had just met was unmatched. If you have the chance to go take it, I promise you won't be disappointed.Carter HuntPit Crew
Summit Tour is an experience I will never forget. The path we took had unique challenges for every driver that pushed their abilities no matter their experience, building comradery and memories that I know I will never forget. I felt like no matter what happened my crew had my back.Jared RandallPit Crew
