“In the spirit of true mountain running, we bring to you The Billy Goats Gruff 5K / 10K Hill Climb, and Kids Run.”— Victor Mariano
Featured Race - Oct 13, 2018
The 5k & 10k will race up and down the mountain on a 1.5 mile loop which will gain and lose 500 plus feet each loop. Your quads will ache by the end of this one.
There is also a hill climb (roughly .25 miles) straight up the steepest part of the mountain! If you can run up this course without using your hands, you'll earn legendary status!
We also have a kids race (roughly 1k) that will allow them to get a taste of mountain running!
