Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 14th! Do you have what it takes to be King or Queen of the Mountain? 

King of the Mountain & Queen of the Mountain, is a new race at Monte Sano State Park. The race will start at the top of closed Bankhead road and run down to the bottom and straight back up (242ft of gain over 2 kilometers) . We will track the split between the start at the top of the mountain, split at the bottom of the mountain, and finish time. We were inspired by the mountain stages of the tour de France and the awarding of the polka dot jersey! Make your mark as Queen or King of the Mountain! 

Packet pick up will be at Fleet Feet Sports on Friday, November 13th from 12-5pm. Race day pickup will be held at the park starting at 6:45am.

I've been running since April of 2011, and I got into it mostly for weight loss purposes.  I quickly realized that I loved running and became interested in getting better and setting goals.  Each season brings different challenges, and I like being coached by people that coach me based on my personal goals, rather than a generic website that makes us all one type of runner.  RunningLane is perfect for runners seeking specific training tailored to their own personal goals.
