Event Description

What used to be a no-holds barred run up a mountain in the 1970's, turned grassroots community running event, is now back with a competitive edge that's fun for everyone!!  

This classic trail run is one of the hardest 10k races in Los Angeles and offers a cash prize purse, a "Speed Demon" time bonus, and a fastest "Local Legend" prize.  Finisher medals, overall winners and age group awards are handcrafted by local artists, the shirts are soft, a sweet design, and fit specific to men, women, and children, and you get official bragging rights for next year's event.  

Be a part of the Hiker's Delight and get a head start on runners up the mountain.  

Kids can run the Junior Tough Topanga 1-kilometer race, too. 

The post-race festival features live music, beer garden, and art festival.
