WOODMONSTER HILL CLIMB CHALLENGE
The Woodmonster is one of the toughest climbs in the East Bay. It is difficult, it is steep, it is glorious. To spice up the already zesty Woodmonster race, this is a fun premium to the fastest men’s and women’s times up the 0.8 mile Woodmonster Climb. The climb happens mid-race, so even if you finish 200th overall, you can still win by getting yourself up the hill faster than everyone else. Click for more info
Team prizes will be awarded to the team with the most participants, as well as the fastest team (top 5 finishers score).
