IRON MOUNTAIN — The Rotary Club of Iron Mountain-Kingsford is thrilled to announce the creation of a new, one-of-a-kind event taking place Sunday, August 4, 2019 at 9:00 am CST. Appropriately named the Pine Mountain 500, the event takes place at Giant Pine Mountain in Iron Mountain.
Participants have a gradual 2.5 mile downhill before hitting the 500 outdoor stairs at Pine Mountain. Participants have an opportunity to enjoy one of the few continuous sets of 500 stairs in the entire United States.
All ages and abilities are encouraged to attend and awards will be given for age groups from 5 years old to 70+. There will also be recognition for overall course times as well as the awarding of the prestigious King and Queen of the Mountain titles to those who have the fastest times on the stairs.
