SCHOFIELD BARRACKS (HawaiiNewsNow) -

If you're up for a challenge, you may want to consider singing up for the Army's "Race to the top of Kolekole Pass."

The 10K run features sweeping views of Oahu's Leeward Coast while providing a peaceful setting to push your body to the limit uphill.

“Last year we had nearly 200 participants of all skill levels, the run is never too steep that you can’t keep jogging,” said Army sports specialist Kristen Osborn, Schofield Health and Fitness Center.

“The switchbacks on the way up make it mentally challenging, but you could absolutely walk the route if you prefer, Osborn said. “Overall, I think the route’s very peaceful, kind of like a trail run, but on a paved road,” Osborn added.

The race starts on Schofield Barracks on March 3 at 7 a.m. To register, click here.

It's open to the general public and military members of all ages. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

The Kolekole 10K is the Army's first competitive running race of the year. (And they say there are more to come!)
