The race begins at 8 a.m. in Vail Village on the paved road next to Vail’s Mountain Haus and continues the ascent on a gravel trail that takes runners to the finish line at Eagle’s Nest. The Eagle Bahn Gondola in LionsHead will operate from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. for race-day spectators and volunteers. The HillClimb is presented by the Vail Mountain Haus and is the third race of the 2013 La Sportiva Vail Mountain Trail Running Series.
