Kill The Hill Challenge

Who are the best hill runners in Canada Running Series? Who will be crowned King and Queen of the Hill at this year’s Under Armour Spring Run Off? For over 40 years, runners have been conquering High Park’s Spring Road Hill in the final 365 metres of Toronto’s oldest continuously-held road race. This year we want you to ‘Kill the Hill’ and give it everything you’ve got in that final climb as part of our Kill The Hill Challenge!

Back by popular demand, we will be offering a separate, complete set of race results for that 365m section up the legendary hill. For both 8K and 5K you’ll be able to compare your hill-running strength against Canadian stars, as well as your club and crew friends.

Times will be calculated via Sportstats Race Results timing mats in the final 365m of the race.  Amazing Under Armour prizes will be awarded to the top male and female in both the 8K and 5K distances, including on-stage photo opportunity with cape and crown! Visit the Sportstats booth in the party site after the race to see if you’re in the running to win. Winners will be announced during our Awards Ceremony beginning at 11:50 a.m.

We want to know who’s got the most pep left in their step as they make their way up Spring Road Hill, carried by the deafening cheers of spectators, family and friends, to the finish line. Everyone who registers for the Under Armour Spring Run-Off will be automatically entered into the challenge.

All invited elite athletes will be included in the results, but will not be eligible for prizing in the Kill the Hill Challenge.
