About the Event
The Hills Creek Endurance challenge will feature a 3 mile loop around Hills Creek Lake featuring mostly single track trail. The start/finish and aid station will be at the Sugarbush Pavilion with a water only aid station approximately 1.5 miles into the loop. The loop has just over 200 ft. of elevation gain. Those competing can register for the 3-hour, 6-hour or 12-hour option and complete as many loops as they want/can within the allotted time.
It is our goal to have 100% of the proceeds from this event be donated to a specific cause. In the past, we have supported a specific family, the Glioblastoma Foundation and Mission 22. As soon as our 2024 benefactor has been determined, we will share here!
We are happy to share that Kyle Reynolds KRNatural Photography will be on course race day.
