HILLOWEEN is a honor system, multi-location hill climbing contest.
2014 NEW RULES IN BOLD
NO ENTRY FEE, NO LOTTERY, NO WAIT LIST.
SEARCH “HILLOWEEN IV” ON FACEBOOK AND JOIN THE EVENT
(FOR THE SOCIAL MEDAI AVERSE, JUST FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES FOR PARTICIPATION AND SUBMISSION.)
The premise is simple.
Choose a course where you can set a new personal record for elevation gained in a day (on foot).
Hill repeats are boring but tend to be the most efficient.
Climbs of less than 700 feet in one push will not count in 2014 and moving forward.
NO MECHANIZED AIDS ARE ALLOWED IN 2014 AND MOVING FORWARD (BIKES, CAR, TRAM, TREADMILL…)
IF IT’S NOT YOUR FEET, YOU ARE A CHEAT.
Go out and do it on October 25 2014. You have eight* hours of time to knock it out (running clock).
Submit the following information (distances in American not metric please) to us via the contact form on this site.
RESULTS NOT OFFICIALLY SUBMITTED BY 10/26/14 AT 2AM MOUNTAIN TIME WILL NOT BE OFFICIALLY COUNTED FOR AWARDS.
STARTING IN 2014 RUNNERS WITH A TOTAL WITHIN 250 FEET OF EACH OTHER WILL BE CONSIDERED A TIE.

-Distance (shorter is better – steeper average grade) SECOND TIE BREAKER
