Runners take off in front of the Mono Lake Committee in Lee Vining.

This run allows you to truly enjoy the beauty of the Eastern Sierra from Mono Lake to Tioga Pass. Proceeds from the Run benefit the Mono Lake Committee.
Be prepared for any weather, from warm late summer temperatures to early winter snow flurries. Weather conditions can vary greatly from the start to finish line. There will be aid stations at miles 3, 6, 9, and the finish. Car shuttles will be available to transport gear bags to the finish line during the Run and to provide participants with transportation back to Lee Vining after the Run.
