Queen and King of the Hill

Queen and King of the Hill is a single elimination virtual running tournament that took place in June and July 2021.

The format

Every runner will randomly placed into a 64-person bracket. They will then go head-to-head in pairs to see who can post the fastest time on a hill climb. The runner who submits the fastest time of his or her pair advances to the next round. The runner with the slower time of the pair is eliminated.

The round of 16 will see the remaining runners face off on another uphill challenge. Once again, the faster runner advances. The end will see a Final Four compete for the crown of King and Queen of the Hill. Each round will feature a different challenge and last one week. Runners can attempt the weekly challenge as many times as they want during the week and submit their fastest time with GPS verification. 

All the challenges will take place on local Bow Valley climbs. You will have to run the tournament on the segment that is selected each week.  

What if I get eliminated?

No worries, you can still participate in the general classification. All the runners who complete all the challenges will be entered to the prize draw at the end of the tournament. So giv'er and see what you are capable of!
