42nd Annual, Mt. Baldy Run to the top - Labor Day

One of the most difficult races in California. It's approximately 8 miles long with a grueling 4,000 foot elevation gain. Starting close to 6,000 foot elevation in The Angeles National Forest with the finish line on the summit of Mt Baldy at 10,064 feet elevation.

A BIG Congratulations to --

I am not walking, I am not walking, I am not walking...

okay maybe just a little

The interesting series of these steep inclines make it easy to tell why they call it the Devil's Backbone Trail.

Almost there, finish line just to the (3rd) mountain top

Betty finishes 1:50
Naomi 2:07

Victor Carillo: Fast, crazy fast


Betty and Naomi wave good-bye to Chris as they take the ski lift down.

(BTW... No bib, no $5, no ride back down. Next time sign up Chris!)
