The Red Bug Hill Challenge is a unique part of the days events. Anyone who registers for a cycling ride or running event can take part in The Challenge.
West Feliciana has its fair share of hills, but Red Bug Hill is one of the toughest. Riders who want to participate in the challenge will be timed one at a time from the bottom of the hill to the top. You only get one try.
The hill is located a short distance from on site registration. It is also convenient to end of the course for the cycling rides. You can complete The Challenge anytime between 7:30 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
All participants in the challenge earn another ticket for the raffle held after completion of all events. In addition, age group winners get a prize (plus bragging rights for a full year).
