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.

At the end of your journey, we’ll have warm cooked food with a beer garden to enjoy, too. Your family and friends are invited to celebrate, as well!
