Southern California’s premiere trail marathon was first run in the Saddleback Mountains of the Cleveland National Forest in 1988. An annual event for nearly three decades, it was cancelled due to #HolyFire on its 30th anniversary in 2018. We were back for 2019 on an alternate course, and we are planning to be back on the original course for December 5, 2020. (Registration Opens May 1, 2020)

Saddleback Mountain trails are where so many of us in Southern California fell in love with trail running.
