Pinckney Running Club is proud to sponsor the 42nd running of the The ORIGINAL Run Thru Hell - a classic race through the infamous Hell, Michigan. In 2021 we will run the 5 mile event only. The event starts and finishes at Hell Creek Ranch. The course winds you thru the surrounding roads thru Hell and back to Hell Creek Ranch. Course map available below.
Flexible start time: Start the race any time between 8 am and 9 am. There will be no crowded mass start. Keep an eye on the start line and begin your race when it is free of other participants. No more than 5 people will start at a time. The start line will be wide, and the space is very open to allow for proper social distancing. You do not have to feel rushed to get to the starting line. Start your race when you are ready. Timing does not start until you cross the timing mats.
Results: Your accurate chip time and current overall and age group place will be texted to your phone and live on this site. Please remember your overall and age group place will not be final until the last person has crossed the finish line at approximately 10:30 am.
Entry Fee: $30 includes a t-shirt and post race refreshments. This year we're going vintage with our t-shirts! Each participant will receive a t-shirt from a previous year.
