We pick the 9 hills. You pick the route. Your heart rate picks up…way up! Description You can cycle 9 of Olympia’s most killer hills, as a racer or a rider, and become a King Of The Hills. Plus, you’ll help provide back-to-school supplies for low income kiddies in the Thurston County area. This fantastic urban hill challenge starts near Tumwater Hill and includes 4 hills on the east side of downtown Olympia, as well as 4 hills on the west side, along with Tumwater Hill itself. The hills are: Tumwater Hill (Crosby Blvd SW) West Side of Downtown: Courthouse Hill (Lakeridge Dr. SW) Old St. Peter’s Hill (4th Ave W) Harrison Hill West Bay Drive (Schneider Hill and Raft Ave NW) East Side of Downtown: Legion Way SE Hill 4th Ave E. Hill San Francisco St NE Berry St NE You decide the route you want to take to get up all 9 hills the quickest, and back to the Start/Finish line. Each hill will have an attendant to check you off and fuel to keep you going. Once you finish, there will be a super cool King Of The Hills t-shirt waiting for you, and a beer garden for those over 21. Registration is only $30 + $10 donation in school supplies (or cash) for the Little Red Schoolhouse. All riders and racers receive: - Ticket for 1 beer at the beer garden (21+ Only) - King Of The Hills t-shirt - Rider’s lanyard with pins for all 9 hills King / Queen of the Hills medallions for first place Male and Female finishers.
