Best Killer Hill

Increase your stamina and speed by tackling the hill on Leland Street, starting at Beach Drive in Chevy Chase. Even experienced runners find the steep and winding road a challenge as calves and thighs scream for a break. But if you still need more of a challenge, crank up the intensity with intervals that mimic rolling hills. Once you reach Summit Avenue, you have conquered the test and are rewarded by an equally long downhill stretch that serves as a good cooldown. Leland Street, Chevy Chase​
