    Use the code “RACEGRADER” for 10% OFF registration!

    What used to be a no-holds barred run up a mountain in the 1970’s, turned grassroots community running event, is now back with a competitive edge that’s fun for everyone!!  This classic trail run is one of the hardest 10k races in Los Angeles and offers a cash prize purse, a “Downhill Flyer” time bonus, and a fastest “Local Legend” prize. Finisher medals, overall winners and age group awards are handcrafted by local artists, the shirts are soft, a sweet design, and fit specific to men, women, and children, and you get official bragging rights for next year’s event.

    Be part of the Hiker’s Delight and get a fully-supported, head start on runners up the mountain.

    Kids under 15 years old can run the Junior Tough Topanga 1-kilometer race, and earn prize money, too!

    Enjoy hard-earned breakfast tacos after the race, check out the exhibitors at the post-race festival, or make runner friends in the Sufferfest beer garden while embellishing race stories. There’ll be plenty of breakfast and places to sit for everyone. Cheer on the future of trail running as kids run the Junior’s race and stick around for the awards ceremony honoring the toughest runners.  Maybe even get lucky and win a giveaway from an amazing event sponsor!

  • Ridge Route Ultra

    Use the code “RACEGRADER20” for 20% OFF registration!

    You’re out there…on a point-to-point course…surrounded by beauty…on a 100-year old road!

    Welcome to the Ridge Route Ultra, a premier ultra trail race run along the historic Old Ridge Route Road!! Built in 1915, to connect Bakersfield with Los Angeles, the Ridge Route has a special place in California history. Runners can now re-trace the steps that brought the goods to market.

    Participants will experience some of the most scenic, untouched landscape as they descend from Quail Lake in Gorman, California to Castaic Lake.  The majority of the course is on National Forest lands on roads closed to the public. Enjoy the scenery and test your focus and speed on the pavement, gravel, and dirt of this 100-year old road.

    Across the ridges of the the San Gabriel Mountains, runners will behold panoramic vistas of the Los Padres National forest to the West, pass historical landmarks on this famous motorway, and gaze down onto beautiful Castaic Lake. You’ll climb over 2,800’ on the net-downhill course, run on some of the original road’s brickwork, and stop at aid stations where travelers rested a century ago.

    The Ridge Route Ultra features two distances:  a 50k Ultra and a 25k Trail Run.  The Ridge Route Ultra is a fundraiser for the Ridge Route Preservation Organization, working to protect and preserve the 1915 Ridge Route.
