Hell on Hogsback: Endurance Challenge in Cleveland, Ohio is a physical and mental test geared towards those looking to give back in a BIG way on one of the most infamous hills the area has to offer.  The race is located in the Rocky River Reservation at the top of Stinchcomb Memorial Hill. The objective is simple: how many times can you complete the out & back hill course within the allotted time? 


Hell on Hogsback is a 0.75 mile out & back (or what some might say...down & up) course with 122ft elevation gain & 122ft elevation descent at an average 12% grade per lap.  Starting at the top of Stinchcomb Memorial Hill, runners will head down to the bottom of the hill, take a sharp right, and continue their way down to the bottom of Hogsback Lane.  At the bottom of Hogsback, runners will loop around a cone and reverse their footsteps back up Hogsback & to the top of Stinchcomb. Runners will complete their lap by completing a loop through the parking lot where runner's aid stations, tents, and vendors will be. 

There will be three different endurance challenges available:

  1. Solo - 12 Hour Endurance Challenge (Starting @ 7:00a)
  2. Solo - 1 Hour Endurance Challenge (Starting @ 7:00a)
  3. Two Person Teams - 12 Hour Endurance Challenge (Starting @ 7:00a)
