History

image260

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