Description

PLACE:
Wherever you are ready to bring the grit and determination!   
Yes, this is a Virtual Event but if you are local to the Atlanta area, here are two Group Run Options where you can join many.

  • Saturday morning 3/20 at Sawnee Mountain @ Tower Road parking at Cumming First United Methodist Preschool
  • Sunday morning 3/21 at Kennesaw Mountain parking at Visitors Center.  

These are both excellent steep mountains that will allow you to chip away at elevation.  Come see some gueranimals in action and get inspired to Get Uncomfortable.

CHALLENGE DESCRIPTION:  Hills are open and ready to be attacked from 12:00 AM on March 19th to 11:59 PM on March 21st.  

This is a team based event to be eligible for cash prizes but you can register and complete as an individual or with one other person (Cash prize eligibility based on teams of 3 or 4 people).  The goal of each team to complete this challenge is climb 30,000 feet of ascent as a team, 7500 feet as an individual or 15,000 as a pair within the event time.  If you live in a flat location like Florida OR just prefer the insanity of using a Treadmill / Stair Stepper, go ahead and sign up.  We don't care how you get 30,000 feet but if you are shooting for a spot on the podium of total elevation with eligibility for prizes, you MUST follow specific rules (See Rules Below)

We realize there are some gueranimals that walk amongst us and you won't stop at 30,000 but will go until you can't go anymore!  In the event you are a lone wolf..no worries we can connect you with some fellow crazy people to get this done.  We are awarding the Top 3 teams that finish with the most elevation gained in both the 3 and 4 person groups with cash and prizes.

Grab your running buddies and let's get ready to climb.  This is an interactive event and the more we band together to share stories of the grind during this challenge the more we inspire others to get out there and expect more!  

Upload your GPX data or manually input your feet & miles to this site after login.  The leaderboard is measured in ascent.
