About This Event:

Join us for the 29th annual Run To Climax!  This is a scenic Memorial Day race with profits going to our local elementary school. Your participation helps fund materials and activities provided by the Climax-Scotts PTO. Thank you for your support!

Come for the run, stay for more fun! Hang around after the race for the Climax Memorial Day Parade at 10:00, followed by activities at the high school like the classic car show and craft booths.

Important Change:

Due to the increased amount of activities and traffic, we will be closing streets to ensure the safety of our runners. Because of this, runners need to plan on finishing within a 1 hour time frame. This means the race will end at 9:00 a.m. and anyone still on the race course will need to move out of traffic's way and continue at their own risk. Thank you for understanding that safety is our top priority.
