Ever wondered why Hospital Hill Run added a 10K in 2007?  Take a look at the history of Hospital Hill Run.

In 1974 Hospital Hill Run began with a 6.8 mile run and 1 mile run.  In 1976 a half marathon was added and the 6.8 mile run was lengthened to a 7.7 mile run.  In 1983 the 7.7 mile run was shortened to 7.5 miles due to construction on course and the distance remained until 1990 when it went back to a 7.7 mile event.  In 1994 the 7.7 mile distance was changed to an 8K and in 1996 was once again changed to a 12K.  The 12K distance remained from 1996 until 2007, when the Board of Directors decided to use a more universally recognized event distance and the 10K event began.
