Race Preview: 2018 Mt. Ashland Hill Climb

Course Description: Up!

Boasting of being one of the races with the most elevation gain of any continuous hill climb in the continental United States, with a total of over 5,600’ of climbing, this race is not for untrained legs!

If you’re ready and willing to give it a go, head to Ashland on Saturday, August 11th for the 41st annual Mt. Ashland Hill Climb!

The length is a bit more than a half marathon; it is 13.3 challenging miles starting in downtown Ashland’s Lithia Park and climbing dirt roads and trails to finish on the Mt. Ashland summit.

It’s a point to point race and all runners are responsible for getting themselves back to Ashland after the race, but sign up early to catch a ride on the shuttle bus for free!

Proceeds from this race will go to the Ashland Woodlands and Trails Association, which is a private, non-profit group that helps Ashland maintain and preserve the woodlands and trails.

Once registration has filled, there will not be a waitlist, so watch the video from last year below, grab a spot, and start your training!
