COVID-19 Update: In light of the current pandemic, a desire to assist in flattening the curve, and a deep love for each of you, we have decided to delay all group runs for the remainder of the month of March. Meanwhile, keep finding the beauty of the trails that surround us, share with us your adventures, and reach out to the trails and people in need.
We have suspended registration for the event – We will work with all current registered runners to find a solution that works for everyone. Thank you for your understanding.
DESCRIPTION: A knock out style hill climb tournament. Every runner will race a minimum of 2 hills in this double elimination format. 2 runners at a time.
Once a runner is eliminated they will be given a custom cowbell and a location on the hill to heckle (cheer) the rest of the tournament.
We have 32 spots for men and 32 spots for women.
Prizes for Overall winner (male and female) as well as fastest climb and most inspiring climb.
The hill is about 1/10th of a mile “long”. It averages 25% grade peaking out at a 60% grade.
Powder Mills Park:
Powder Mills Park is a gem in the Monroe County Parks system – With steep hill sides – creeks – and beautiful single track we are excited to introduce this system to many of you. Powder Mills park is a winter lover’s dream with downhill skiing, sledding, snowshoes, and running opportunities – The hill we will run will follow the old ski hill with rusted out and forgotten tow poles still in place.
DISTANCE DISCLAIMER: This is a hill. We go up. You come back down. All under your own power.
Water: We will have a jug at the bottom
We need volunteers! email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help us!
