Welcome to the 2021 King of the Mountain 4K! This race IS GOING TO HAPPEN!!! 

Mark your calendars for Saturday, July 24th! Do you have what it takes to be King or Queen of the Mountain? 

King of the Mountain & Queen of the Mountain, is a new race at Monte Sano State Park. The race will start at the top of closed Bankhead road and run down to the bottom and straight back up (242ft of gain over 2 kilometers) . We will track the split between the start at the top of the mountain, split at the bottom of the mountain, and finish time. We were inspired by the mountain stages of the Tour de France and the awarding of the polka dot jersey! Make your mark as Queen or King of the Mountain! 

Race day packet pickup will be held at the park starting at 6:45am. 

This year we will not have multiple waves but rather one mass start at 8:00am. 

Shirts, Awards & Weather

The race shirt will be a short sleeve tri-blend shirt. 

Awards will be given for the following categories (male & female): The runner with the fastest descent, fastest ascent and fastest overall time! 

In the event of severe weather we will delay the start as necessary to avoid lightening. If severe weather threatens the entire day and does not appear to let up, we may be forced to cancel.

There are no refunds, credits or friend/ family transfers on entries.
