What is Hell on Hills?
Beechview is only minutes away from Downtown via the “T,” Pittsburgh’s trolley system. It is home to a diverse population in a neighborhood filled with hardworking people dedicated to helping others and improving the community they call home. In 1912, the community challenged the city to find a solution to the fact that the normal horse and wagon used by firemen did not work on our hills.
This year our community is challenging you to tackle those same hills, including the steepest street in the world. The staggering 37% grade of Canton is just the beginning as the course continues to climb four of the biggest hills Pittsburgh has to offer.
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO TACKLE THE WORLD’S STEEPEST 5K? THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY TO FIND OUT!
