The Mt. Baldy 5000 course is challenging, but is designed to be a mountain race for runners of all ability levels. There are great views the entire way and the course is extremely spectator friendly for any friends and family that join us. After the race, join us at the Top of the Notch for dinner, music, and drinks just steps away from the finish line. We can't promise any 5K PRs on our course, but we can promise views, sunsets, and one of the most unique race environments you've ever experienced. Although there is no charge for participation in the first three stages, anyone who plans to run these segments and wants to appear on the leaderboard or be eligible for prizes is required to sign up at the "Running Sign Up Page". In order to participate in the final segment, The Mt. Baldy 5000, runners must register and pay to secure their spot via the ultrasignup.com link. Please make sure to carefully review the FAQs on the sign up page as well.
