Springville Extreme Quarry Run / Walkin United States at Downtown Springville
Online registration is closed for this category.
On August 12, 2017 beginning at 8:00 am in Springville, Iowa, the Springville Extreme 6K Quarry Run will kick off. Runners will start in downtown Springville, head west of town and traverse a steep descent down into the working Wendling Quarry. While in the depths of the quarry they will travel through a tunnel, blasted through the rock under Highway 151, turn around, come back through the tunnel and back up an aggressive ascent before finishing downtown. Awards will be given for top finishers of the 6K, both overall and age division. Within the race itself, the fastest male and female to run up the hill in the quarry will be crowned King and Queen of the Hill Challenge.
