Hell on Hills, in Beechview is advertised as the world’s steepest 5k. After interviewing Bethany Ruhe and Melissa Harmon, two of the race organizers, we can’t wait for this to be a yearly event.
Beechview, located minutes away from downtown Pittsburgh via the “T,” Pittsburgh’s trolley system, is home to a diverse population…and the steepest street in the world. The staggering 37% grade of Canton is just the beginning of a 5k course that climbs four of the biggest hills Pittsburgh has to offer.
The inaugural Hell on Hills 5k takes place on October 15, 2016. A portion of event proceeds will go to the Beechview Athletic Association (BAA). #GetHorned
