_ The 2019 King of the Hill Run:
May 25, 2019 @ 9:30 AM
Come Run/Race 1 to 8 miles where the proceeds are for a VBS/TRI-S mission trip. This is a unique race with an emphasis on challenging oneself to do something impressive today. That may be with one mile, several miles, or by the encouragement and support you show others. Good luck with making all 8 miles! We do not expect anyone to make the 8 cut off times ...or even the seventh perhaps. However, we want you to aim high and be inspired by the true King of the Hill. As the race shirt reads, "He gives strength to the weary." We hope you "will soar like eagles" and accomplish more than you thought possible. If nothing else, you support a good cause and ejoy the day, the refreshments, and the company of others in their quest to put in a mile or more!
A one time 200 (plus) meter uphill race for ages five and under will be at 9:15 AM.
Race Details of the main event: At Memorial Park in New Castle, IN, on a mile loop. The cut off times for each successive mile are as follows (in minutes): 14, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5:30, 5, 4:30. (*Add 30 seconds for the women’s cut-off time)
There is an approximate 3 minute break between each cut-off time (listed above) and the start of the next race. Runners unable to make the cut time for any mile are finished racing for the day, but are invited to enjoy the refreshments and encourage the others in their quests.
Runners earn a placing and a point each mile under the cut time. Those (of each gender) placing first overall get an extra point. You break 4:30, congrats... but our volunteers want to go home. We are done!
The “King of the Hill” overall winners are determined by the male and female with the most points. In the case of a tie, the runner with the last victory wins. Age group winners are scored in the same manner as the overall, gaining a point each time one is first in one’s age group: 9 and under, 10-14, 15- 19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 and up. To be scored, turn in card placing (with bib info) before the next race.
Awards/prizes ASAP after final mile race. Must be present to win!
