The Billy Goat Hill Climb is a 1/2 Marathon. The course is out and back on the Indian Truck Trail in the Cleveland National Forest. IT AIN"T BUT ONE HILL! The truck trail is wide, well graded, and has good footing. The scenery is great IF you can look up on the assent and dare to look up during the descent. This is a great introduction to racing on Saddleback. We are limited to 200 runners.
The post race lunch is included in the entry fee. Yes, we serve veggie burgers too.
Registration 7:00am Start 8:00am See web site for details, like directions to the venue.
The 2017 course has been changed slightly due to the encroaching residences near Santiago Canyon Road. Rather than starting 100 Yards from Santiago Canyon, the race will start and finish .4 miles further up Indian Truck Trail. The turn around will be at the junction of the Main Divide and ITT.
Original Old Goat's Birthday
We celebrate The Original Old Goat's Birthday – Steve Harvey, Race Director. Please, no presents other than your presence and hugs. After the post race party, we will head over to Tom's Farm to continue the revelry and listen to some music by the Lagoon.

For those unfamiliar with the area, Indian Truck is one off-ramp south of Temescal Canyon and Tom’s Farm - an excellent place to eat, relax, or just stroll around the grounds… running attire is acceptable! Glen Ivy Spa is another great attraction where one can be pampered (for a price) like royalty. The warm sulfur and mud baths are great on aching bones. Not to confused with Glenn Eden (naturist resort) where you can also relax as long as you take off the running attire and anything else you might be wearing… bring Sun Block.
