Every runner knows hills are an essential part of training. In Emporia, Highland Hill is the hill that breaks you down to build you up. After departing from Gravel City Adventure & Supply Co., take a jog through the beautiful Emporia State University campus to warm up your legs for the climb that is ahead. This is an excellent route for runners of all level due to its flat outlay, aside from the ominous hill! After your run, be sure to spend some time exploring downtown Emporia!
