Running and Bike Race

Race Date: November 22, 2015
Check in at top of hill.

 The Straight Street Hill Climb is billed as ‘one of the most grueling sub-mile runs on the planet’ by event organizers. “It’s two minutes of self-inflicted torture,” claims event coordinator, Doug Newberry. This year’s hill climb will be the 39th anniversary of the event that started in 1976 by the Clifton Track Club. It has been run almost annually ever since. The bike race was added in 2011, along with the option to both run and bike up the hill in consecutive assaults.

The format will be similar to previous years. Running race will start at 9 a.m. with the Bike race afterwards. The 1.08-mile Biathlon returns this year and is open to anyone who entered either the run or the bike event. No extra fee for this masochistic attempt.

Running race will begin at 9 a.m.. Bike races will begin about 9:30 a.m.. Depending on the number of riders, cyclists may be started in multiple heats.
