    Some pretty good locations on the publicstairs site, but still I wonder why not just run hills, they can be much higher and very steep indeed. Do we actually require steps, as opposed to just elevation?

    For instance there is a mountain a few miles from my house that is 2200 feet in height with more than 20 degrees of angle in many places in less than three miles length.

    Love you posts

    • Yep, your instinct is correct. Elevation is really all you need. Hills are great too. Stairs are just more convenient and they usually give more elevation in a shorter length, so they are often more time efficient as well, when compared to most hikes or hill runs. Your mountain sounds awesome though!
