While we are back for 2021 with approval from the local health Department and the Forest Service, there will be some very distinct changes for this years event.

The event will be held over two days to allow for more people to participate while still following our covid mitigation plan.

The 50k will be on Saturday, June 12th & the 25k(that's right 5 bonus kilometers) will be on Sunday, June 13th.

Start/Finish will be in the Goat Meadow Snow Play Area, roughly 1 mile up the road from Camp Green Meadows. This will alter the former 20k course adding roughly 3 more miles and a little hill.

Our normal Start/Finish at Green Meadows will be under construction during the summer months of 2021. We are hoping to be back at Green Meadows for 2022.

We have a COVID Mitigation plan that we have established with the Mariposa Board of Health. Once registered all participants will be emailed the complete details of this plan.
In short, the plan will not allow, pre and post race gathering, sorry no raffles, masks will need to worn in the start/finish area, we will stagger runners at the start line to promote social distance, on the course aid stations will be as contact free as possible with only pre packaged food, this event will be cup less as well.


For those of you looking register for our 2021 event we have enabled the waitlist. This will give an opportunity for previously registered participants from 2020 to claim their deferred entry.

After May 15th if there is room to add participants we will begin inviting waitlisted runners to the roster.

Space is very limited in the 50k and if all runners from 2020 claim their spots the event will fill up

For the 25k we will have space and begin inviting waitlisted runners on May 15th.


Scenic historic trails through the Sierra National Forest. The 50k run takes you past 3000 year old Giant Sequoias in the famous Nelder Grove. The brand new 20k run course takes you on many of the same trails as the gorgeous 50k course. Elevation is 5,000 - 6,500 ft. Time limit for 50k: 8 hours. Pets are not allowed on the trail, so please leave your doggies at home!
