Jerome Hill Climb is just like the name sounds – a challenging course that starts at the Jerome Historical Museum and winds up through the Jerome streets continuing on a dirt road past the Gold King Mine and ending at a gorgeous view of Sedona.
We are returning to the traditional 4.5 mil course.

Start and Finish:
7:30 a.m. start– small group rolling wave starts depending on predicted running pace, starting with the fastest first.
The race starts at 7:30 a.m. approximately 1 mile from the registration area. After the race you will have a 3.5 mile jog or walk back to your car.
The race uses the traditional bib pull timing system. All runner’s times are recorded based on the starting gun.
Parking is limited in Jerome so we ask that you plan accordingly and give yourself enough time to park in the main parking lot past the Fire Department building (see photo), and then walk/jog to the start line (approximately one mile downhill). There is absolutely no parking or dropping off at the start line.
Spectators are NOT allowed to drive on the course! For the safety and enjoyment of the runners, DON’T drive on the course. The dirt road is narrow and dusty. Stop at the lot behind the firehouse and walk along the course to watch the runners.
