Annual Rocky Mount Hill Challenge
457 S. Main St.
Rocky Mount, Virginia 24151
In Rocky Mount our roads aren’t just crooked they’re steep too!
The Annual Rocky Mount Hill Challenge being held Saturday, September 8th puts together five miles with 5 of the toughest hills Rocky Mount has to offer including a 2 mile sprint.
The course features a 900 ft elevation/decent taking runners on a winding cruise through Historic Downtown, a stint through the Judicial District, a descending preview of East Court onto a demoralizing climb, the last stage is a 2 mile sprint with the dreaded climb up East Court Street. The feeling of easy hill from earlier quickly turns to regret as the climb up the monstrous hill ensues.
The race pacer will be mid-pack and will take a 3-minute break at each station upon arrival to fuel, and stretch before the next stage. After the race awards will be presented to the Top 3 overall male and Top 3 overall female.
Online and race day registration is available. Race day pickup will take place at 457 S. Main St., Rocky Mount, VA from 6:45 am to 8:00 am.
