Growlers Gulch Racing hosted the Climbing Championship, its fifth and final event of the season, on October 17 2009. Representing the Growlers Gulch Girls at this event was Mel Norris, Denise Vernon, and Dara Muldoon. We each attempted to climb a steep hill on five different trails in an effort to accumulate the furthest distance total. The trails included Creek Trail (200'), Lower Jekyll (300'), Secret Garden (175'), Creation (525'), and Lung Buster.
