How We Got Started
Our First Race
The first Steak to the Peak was held on September 9, 2018, with a limited number of entries available. 38 men and women undertook the challenging course including 20 club members and 18 visitors. The event was such a success that the number of entries was doubled for the following year.
The 2019 race was interesting. We made changes to the racecourse and more than doubled the number of runners. However, on race day an unusual September storm rolled in drenching the mountain in rain. Nevertheless, our intrepid runners braved the inclement weather, were serenaded to live mid-race fiddle music and raced to the top of the mountain. There was even a marriage proposal at the conclusion of the race.
