This 13.3 mile event begins in downtown Ashland’s beautiful Lithia Park (el 1900′) and climbs on tree-canopied dirt roads and trails to finish on the Mt. Ashland summit (7533′), for a total of more than 5,600′ of climbing–that’s over a vertical mile!
The Mt Ashland Hill Climb Run has the second most elevation gain of any continuous hill climb in the continental United States. The Pikes Peak Ascent in Colorado is the only event with more–7,800 feet. We have more elevation gain than even the Mt Washington Road Race in New Hampshire (4,727′).
Join us for lunch after the race in the Mt. Ashland parking lot. And maybe a dance contest?
