Description:

Be part of Auburn’s uphill challenge. Climb up to the tallest bridge in California, the Foresthill bridge, 730′ feet high.

The exact distance of our new course is now 1 mile, and not 1k, the vertical climb does not change, as well as our star/finish area.

Runners who complete it under 10 minutes will receive a special award, as well as top male and female runners. Awards will also be given to the youngest and wisest (oldest) runner. While the distance is longer, the terrain is more run-able, for that reason we are not updating our 10 minute club standard.

The 2015 – 2017 event was a great success with runners ranging from 8 years of age to 71 years young. Runners under 8 y/o are encouraged to be accompanied by their parent or guardian.

This event is capped to only 100 runners and will sell out as it did the last two years. Register early and secure your spot, as always, we have the best swag, whether you sign up for our 110k or 1mile race, we go out of our way to make you feel appreciated.

Group of up to 25 runners will start every 15 minutes. We will select starting times at random and post them online a few days before the event. They will be posted here and in our facebook event page.

Come out and test yourself or cheer on runners while they scramble their way up the hill. Be aware that while this is a short run, it is a point to point event without shuttle, so you decided to park at the start (bottom) area and then run up, or park at the finish (top) and run back down to the start. All vehicles must be out of the top parking area by 11:30am, otherwise we will lock your vehicle inside.
