Since you’ll need extra energy for the hill go at a slower pace before you get to it, that way you won’t be completely beat when it comes time to power up the hill. Conquering a large hill is also a mental thing just keep thinking that you can do it and all the hard work you’ve put in! Hope this helps, good luck!

One of my friends always says that hills are good because you use different muscles than when running on flat surfaces – “happy hills” – I’m not sure I consider them a “break” but I try to convince myself of this when I’m actually running. ๐Ÿ™‚  I think sometimes running is as much mental as it is physical (especially if you’ve put the time in to train!)  Good luck and have fun!!

Good luck!  And for such a good cause ๐Ÿ™‚

I always admire people who can run such long distances.  I can’t even do 1K without wanting to cry!

hrev’s advice is good! Also, don’t look up. Concentrate on looking at the few feet ahead of you. In no time, you’ll be at the top. If you get to go down the hill afterwards, coast and enjoy! Have a great run ๐Ÿ™‚
