The Hellclimb is a bicycle race from Ashcroft to the Brake check at the top of the hill 18 km away. Travelling south on Hwy 97c you will climb 3000 ft in only 18 km. Being one of the steepest climbs you can do in that distance in British Columbia, it proves to be a great challenge. Added to the challenge is that temperatures in Ashcroft regularly get over 30°C. You’ll find out why this is called the Hellclimb! For Strava users, here is a link to the ride … http://app.strava.com/segments/670155

People come to the Hellclimb each for for one of 3 reasons …
1 – to race against some of the best climbers in the interior for a shot at some gas money.
2 – to make the accomplishment of climbing that dang ol hill.
3 – to enjoy sitting around with a nice burger and talk with new and old friends.
Cash prizes will be given to top 3 of the female and male racers.
A shuttle/sag wagon is available to bring clothes, etc. to the top.
To give me a good idea of how much food to bring, please register soon.
