Beechview is only minutes away from Downtown via the "T," Pittsburgh's trolley system. It is home to a diverse population in a neighborhood filled with hardworking people dedicated to helping others and improving the community they call home. In 1912, the community challenged the city to find a solution to the fact that the normal horse and wagon used by firemen did not work on our hills.
This year the Beechview community is challenging you to tackle those same hills, including the steepest street in the world. The staggering 37% grade of Canton Avenue is just the beginning as the course continues to climb four of the biggest hills Pittsburgh has to offer.
Hell on Hills will set the record as the world's steepest 5K.
