Event Details

Organizers are dedicated not to disappoint and every year from the start we have received nearly a 100% satisfaction on our post race survey. Whether you are a new runner looking for a challenging 5k or a long distance runner looking for a 10k training challenge to prepare for Dam to Dam or another upcoming long distance race, this race is for you. 

The Springtime Hill Climb is a race designed by runners just like you. We run on the trails and tracks you do, we ran Dam to Dam, the WAMM, the Warrior, the DSM Marathon and many others right beside you and we designed this race for you.

The 5K and 10K course both finish in Doanes Park. Race day registration will be available from 7:00-7:30 AM for $35. Registration will close promptly at 7:30 AM.

Race starts at 8:00 AM.


The Springtime Hill Climb run is an annual event hosted by the City of Pleasant Hill to Support Caring Hands Outreach, the Clothes Hanger and Food Pantry for Eastern Polk County. More than 800 households representing over 2000 individuals are given food equivalent to more than 180,000 meals and over 30,000 items of clothes each year.


Doanes Park is located at 5050 Doanes Park Rd, Pleasant Hill, IA 50327 and there will be parking provided in the park through the south entrance off 6th Ave.


Those participants who registered through 3/18/2018 (Late Registration begins 3/19/2018) will receive a 2018 Springtime Hill Climb performance running shirt. Late registrants and walk-ons can select a classic t-shirt from a prior race/year. T-shirts and size availability are not guaranteed for late registrants and walk-ons.
