The Mt. Baldy 5000

On Saturday, July 13, Trials of Miles, REI, and HOKA are hosting the second running of the Mt. Baldy 5000, a unique mountain race on the slopes of the Mt. Baldy Resort. While the 5k course promises to be a challenge, this event is designed for runners of all ability levels. This event also includes an epic afterparty at the Top of the Notch, where runners can enjoy a BBQ dinner, music, and drinks just steps away from the finish line. We can’t promise any 5K PRs on our course, but we can promise amazing views, an unforgettable sunset, and a Saturday night adventure in the mountains!

The Course

The Mt. Baldy 5000 course is 3.1 miles long and it's almost entirely uphill. It's definitely a tough course (there are definitely no PRs set here!), but it's a fun course and something that runners of all ability levels can tackle. Most of the race is on fire roads and the footing is good throughout. There are great views the entire way and the course is extremely spectator friendly for any friends and family that join us.

Schedule and Race Waves

The race will start around 6:00pm. Dinner and drinks will be served at the Notch as soon as the first runner crosses the finish line!

BBQ Dinner and Afterparty

Once the race concludes, runners are encouraged to celebrate their finish with a BBQ dinner, live music, and drinks at the Top of the Notch restaurant. The night will then conclude with a 15 minute chairlift ride back to the parking lot where the race started. We promise that this will be one of the most unique and special race afterparties that you've ever experienced.

Please note that the BBQ dinner must be purchased in advance, and can be selected as an add on when you register for the race.
