Run for the Hill of It

Congratulations 2014 Champion & Conquerer of the Hills - Carlos Soto!!

Each year, the Lake Monroe Roadkillers stage their own unofficial race, the nine-mile Run for the Hill of It (RFTHOI). Like the 24-mile Lake Run, RFTHOI is a signature event for the Roadkillers. Unlike the endurance test around Lake Monroe, however, RFTHOI is a speed trial - with a twist.

Participants are seeded, based on their projected pace and finishing time. Runners are sent onto the course one at a time, at pre-determined intervals. In other words, the fastest runners start last and if the handicapper has calculated correctly, everyone should finish at the same time. We're still waiting for that mass sprint finish to happen, but the seeded format keeps things interesting. Seedings are based on actual race results from the season and sandbagging is the norm discouraged.

RFTHOI earns its nickname from the Hill Course on which it's held - a twisting, rolling, nine-mile route near the DeLand (Fla.) Country Club. To say it's hilly is an understatement. In pancake-flat Central Florida, this course stands alone with several steep inclines that will challenge any runner. For an extra dose of discomfort, the race is usually held in August, when temperatures are in the nineties with plenty of humidity. (On a lighter note... water stops are provided and RFTHOI participants are required to visit them, twice, during the race.)
