CONQUER THE CLIMB
Can you Conquer the Climb?
The course begins at Sherwood Forest and traverses through the Sylvan Hills Elementary and High School campuses before returning to Sherwood Forest for the most challenging part of the course – the final climb. The incline to the finish line is how the race became known as the “Conquer the Climb.”

Yes! People-friendly pets are welcome in the 1 Mile. The 5K is for humans only, though. If you want to bring your four-legged-friend, we've got a solution for you! Pet Sitting services will be available during the 5K for a $ 5 (cash) donation per pet, to be paid at the race. Leashed pets only, please! Courtesy of the Sherwood Rotary Pet Club.
