Trail marathon in the Santa Ana Mountains (Southern California) on technical, single-track.
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 alternate course, and for 2020, we are (so-far) scheduled to have the original course.
Saddleback Mountain trails are where so many of us in Southern California fell in love with trail running.
