2nd Annual - White Gravel Mines Heaven & Hell Extreme Trail Run


Portsmouth, Ohio, OH - 4298 White Gravel-McDaniel Rd. 5 miles north of Minford Ohio


August 24, 2013 - 9:00 AM




This extreme run is modeled after the famous Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder events being held nationally. The run is a 5K through the beautiful dense woods, hills, creeks and trails around the White Gravel Mines with a significant portion of the race actually being ran inside the mine itself. It's the only underground race of its kind nationally . The mines are 56 degrees and the chest deep, 40 yard water portion of the mine run is 44 degrees. (This water obstacle may be by-passed with a time penalty) The mines are partially lit by electric as well as more antiquated methods. Each passageway is approximately 20-30' wide and 20'+ high. The stairway to heaven obstacle is a rope "assisted" 45-55 degree climb of over 100'+ with an additional 150' gradual running climb to the top. Other obstacles will round out the experience including a mud bog and log challenge. The drastic temperature and elevation changes will push you and your muscles to your breaking point. Proceeds will go toward the Mylee's Missions Feed the Need Christmas event in December which provides food, toys, coats and other items to hundreds and hundreds of kids and families in our area.
