Hell on Hills, The World’s Steepest 5k, Bethany L. Ruhe, President & Executive Director & Melissa Harmon, Co-Director & Head of Community Outreach.
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 Ave is just part of a 5k course that climbs four of the biggest hills Pittsburgh has to offer. The 2nd annual Hell on Hills 5k takes place on October 7, 2017 at 8am. A portion of event proceeds will go to the Beechview Athletic Association (BAA). For more information about the event, and to register online, go to www.hellonhills.com
