Hill sprints

    Hi all! This seems like a bit of a long shot but any Austin, TX familiar runners who have a 30% hill they’d recommend to use for the hill sprints? I’ve been scouring the Strava heat map and other sources and haven’t found much above 16%.
    Thanks in advance!

    Beauford road is probably the steepest you’ll find in Austin. It’s only about .70 miles long, but is steep enough to require textured pavement to prevent vehicles from sliding. I doubt it gets as steep as 30%, though. I’d guess it gets to 20-25% at points, but it’s been quite a while since I’ve run it. It’s right off Jester, which another well known road hill in Austin.

    I just mapped the road on an online tool and it shows one section of 20-30% and even one bit that’s up to 40%.

    Awesome, thanks! That was one of the hills I was looking at, I’ll check it out.
