Rescheduled Event

RACE reOPEN WITH NEW COURSE > SAME DATE. THIS EVENT WAS REROUTED BECAUSE OVER 50 MILES OF THE ORIGINAL CHIMERA COURSE WAS BURNED DURING THE HOLY FIRE. The forest service has approved a backup course on two trails that were not impacted by the fire. We've added a 20 mile & 40 mile distance so that the registered Saddleback Mountain Goat runners have an opportunity to participate.

Chimera "The Beast"

The Chimera is a figure out of Greek mythology. She is a fire breathing animal comprised of a lion, a goat, and a serpent... and those who have participated in her race refer to it simply as "THE BEAST"
