Virtual Race info and rules

The 2020 edition of the race will be virtual due to COVID-19.  Keeping with "The Hill" theme, it will all be about elevation.  How much elevation GAIN you can get in 3.1 miles (5k).  You can track it using your running watch, phone, whatever device you use.  We will use the honor system, no starting and stopping your watch to avoid the downhills and flat areas.  It must be one non-stop OUTDOOR 5k.  Once complete you will self report your GAIN.  Time does not matter.  We will send out reporting details later.  This year we are also raising money for Land Trust of North Alabama, so we created a twist.  You can buy elevation by making donations through this site to Land Trust.  For every $1 you donate you get 1' of elevation GAIN.  We will have custom stickers for all participants and special awards for the top elevation GAIN, top donation and top combined.
