The Saddleback Marathon

Long Canyon Rd

Lake Elsinore, CA Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K

Registration closes: Fri, Nov 1 @ 11:59PM PT

About the Race

The Saddleback Marathon has been re-routed for the past few years due to #HolyFire & other issues. In 2024, we were hoping to return to our original route but it is looking very likely that one of the trails will not be ready. Therefore, we will be modifying it some, same Start/Finish with some paved campground road, dirt truck trail and single track trails as usual. We promise it will be just as daunting. Elevation gain is significant (roughly 5,000') for the marathon (less for shorter distances). Check out our website for profiles.

Come out and enjoy the wilderness!

Complete Details

No Refunds. This race does not allow refunds of any kind. Race entries will be applied to the following year's race should the Saddleback Marathon get cancelled due to circumstances beyond the race director's control (fire, government, shutdown, etc). Our first choice is not to cancel. We always have a Plan B. If the trail becomes unavailable, we will move to Plan B if possible.

Please see website for complete details.
