Tioga Pass Run: sign up nowJuly 6th, 2012 by Morgan, Policy Coordinator
Many visitors to the Eastern Sierra are familiar with the breathtaking journey by car from Lee Vining up Tioga Pass to Yosemite National Park. It’s one thing to drive up Tioga Pass, but once each year, a group of enthusiasts from near and far gather to experience Tioga Pass on foot. Join the camaraderie of the 32nd annual Tioga Pass Run on Sunday September 9, 2012. All proceeds from the run benefit the Mono Lake Committee.
What could be more fun than gaining 3,200 feet in 12.4 miles? Sign-up before August 15th to take advantage of early registration.
Last year some pioneering high-elevation athletes took the Tioga Pass Run to a whole new level with the Granite Challenge. In true triathlon spirit, participants who swim a mile in June Lake on Friday, ride the 100 mile High Sierra Fall Century bike ride on Saturday, and still have energy for the 12.4 mile Tioga Pass Run on Sunday are recognized as Granite Men & Women at the Sunday Tioga Pass Run lunch. To find out more about the Granite Challenge, please contact Race Director Alana Levin.
Each year we need volunteers from 7:00am–12:00pm to staff support stations, help record times, and cheer the runners on. To volunteer, please contact Race Director Alana Levin.
