About This Activity

An annual event returns to the grounds of Adena Mansion and Gardens with “Kill the Hill,” a race that features a killer hill. Participants can choose between a 5K run/walk, a 10-mile run.

Both races begin and end at the Adena Visitor’s Center. Runners first descend Adena’s landmark hill, then follow a course that winds through Yaples Orchard and Yoctangee Park before return up the hill to finish. Adena’s grounds open to participants on June 20, 2015 at 5:00pm and the races begin at 6:00pm.

Contributions are tax-deductible and all proceeds support the operation of Adena Mansion and Gardens. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 winners in the Men’s and Women’s Divisions. Door prizes will be available to all participants.
