Any ski slopes in the area? Perhaps you could make a deal to run up and chair lift down. If there's snow on the ground, then maybe run up and ski down, assuming you can find someone to haul up a board/ skis


this is why alpine touring is awesome. ski up hill (hard like running). lock boots at top and ski down

I’m curious as to why you want to avoid descending...


my guess and personal issue is downhills cause more injury and damage


That is a possibility. There is certainly more impact going downhill. However if you can go downhill without any discomfort, it will help to open up your stride. Wearing shoes with good cushioning like Hoka One One can make the descents more doable.

I've used parking garages at times when they would have little traffic (to avoid both cars and exhaust fumes) and found it to be a really user-friendly way to accomplish your goal. I took the stairs down and allowed that to be the recovery.

A few times I parked at the top and put out some weights, so I could run up, do something like lightweight squats or walking lunges, then would take the stairs down and do it again.
