Welcome to Ladysmith's Hill Dash! The Hill Dash is a unique running relay event that will put your physical and mental limits to the test as you sprint up Ladysmith's High Street. 

Relay team members are required to run/walk/crawl up High St from First to Third Avenue and then roll a ball down the hill to the next team member that will be waiting on First Avenue. First team of 4 to conquer the hill and roll the ball down across the finish line wins! This promises to be a great running event that will challenge the quads, calves and mind. Portion of the proceeds benefit the Ladysmith Resource Centre Association (LRCA).

All participants over age 19 also get a ball for a chance to win $500 in the "Running of the Balls" event, immediately after the Hill Dash, also on High Street.

What are you waiting for! Put together a team of 4 to compete in Ladysmith's 2019 Hill Dash today. We look forward to seeing you at the start line.
