Hills Creek Endurance Challenge

Written by: on Tuesday, April 16th, 2024

Welcome to the Hills Creek Endurance Challenge!

We are thrilled to announce the upcoming Hills Creek Endurance Challenge, set against the beautiful backdrop of Hills Creek Lake in Pennsylvania. This event promises a thrilling experience for trail runners and outdoor enthusiasts alike, featuring a 3-mile loop predominantly on single-track trails with just over 200 feet of elevation gain. Whether you’re a seasoned ultrarunner or looking for a new challenge, this endurance event offers something for everyone.

Event Details

Participants have the option to register for the 3-hour, 6-hour, or 12-hour challenge, where they can complete as many loops as possible within the designated time frame. The start/finish line and aid station will be located at the Sugarbush Pavilion, with a water-only aid station conveniently positioned approximately 1.5 miles into the loop.

Giving Back – Supporting Boxes of Hope

For this year’s event, we are honored to support Boxes of Hope, a local 501c3 organization based in Mill Hall, PA. Boxes of Hope aims to spread hope and encouragement by sending care packages and mastectomy pillows to individuals undergoing active breast cancer treatment. This donation will be made in honor of our dear friend, Amber Monaghan, who is currently battling breast cancer with incredible strength and determination. Amber’s inspiring spirit motivates us to contribute to this meaningful cause.

Past Beneficiaries and Partners

In previous years, the Hills Creek Endurance Challenge has proudly contributed to organizations such as the Glioblastoma Foundation and Mission 22, supporting important causes within our community.
