Hell on Hills, in Beechviewis 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
