7-mile trail run with a 4,000′ elevation gain, beginning near 6,000′ elevation. The first ¼ mile is paved roadway followed by 5 miles of uphill grade on a dirt fireroad. The next mile is a narrow “catwalk” trail along the mountainside. The final mile, the steepest, is above the timberline. The finish line is atop beautiful Mt. San Antonio (Mt. Baldy) at 10,064′. Walk back from the summit to the Notch near Aid Station #3.
As the sport of trail running becomes more and more popular, we are further challenged with accommodating interested runners while minimizing the impact on the environment. The Mt. Baldy Run-to-the-Top has grown to capacity at approximately 650 runners. We have tried to be flexible on this number but may be forced to turn some folks away. The best way to avoid that possibility is to make the decision to participate in our event well beforehand, preregister, and start training.
Aid Stations available approximately every 2 miles.
