This unique race will take you on a rolling course through Union with a challenging, but rewarding finish at the top of Autumn Hill. As part of the inspiration behind the race, runners have the option to voluntarily carry someone piggyback style up Autumn Hill to the finish line for extra finisher swag.

Countdown to Race Day

Why the Name

Throughout high school, Lance and friends would run almost everyday after dismissal. He routinely ran up Autumn Hill, sometimes more than once per run. Lance loved the hill and the challenge it presented. He never complained about it. Rather, his was the voice of encouragement for others to rise to the challenge. In fact, he is the first person we know of to carry someone piggyback up the hill. Hence the race name, The Piggyback Dash.
