The Mount Wilson Trail Race is the second oldest trail race in California; first held in 1908 when runners raced to the top of Mount Wilson, rested 1/2 hour, then raced back down. Only a handful of intrepid runners dared to attempt such a grueling test. The race was held sporadically from the first year until the late 1940’s and early 1950’s, when it was abandoned completely. In autumn of 1965 it was revived and has grown over the years to its present format. It is currently organized by a volunteer committee and sponsored by the City of Sierra Madre. Due to the steep, narrow features of the trail, the race is limited to approximately 350 runners.
