2020 IN-PERSON EVENT CANCELLED

In response to the recent escalation of the COVID-19 threat in Southern California, we have decided to cancel the 2020 in-person Fun Run. We are very disappointed that the in-person event will not be possible this year, but we believe this is in the best interest of the participants, volunteers, and community. We appreciate your understanding.

YOU CAN TRANSFER TO THE VIRTUAL RACE! We will still hold packet-pickup here in Big Bear for you to pickup your shirt and medal. If you will be up in Big Bear over the 4th, we encourage you to run your own race - you get to pick the time and place!
