What time should I arrive for the race?

Registration opens at 7:15am and closes at 8:15am (for an 8:30am race start). If you are pre-registered, then you may want to arrive by 8:00am to pick up your race bib and chip. If you are planning to register in-person on the morning of the event, arrive as early as possible.

How do I get there, and where do I park?

Once you exit US Highway 395, head east on South Landing Road to the front gate for Crowley Lake Fish Camp. Once you drive through the front gate, there will be volunteers directing traffic and pointing you in the right direction to park. Carpooling is encouraged.

What should I bring to the race?

The weather has traditionally been really beautiful for this event, however, you will want to check the weather in the morning and dress accordingly. Layers are key, as the morning can be quite cool but warm up quickly as the sun rises.

Sunscreen, hat, and water are all recommended for this event. There will be two aid stations providing water as well.

What kind of support will there be on the trail?

We will have three aid stations where you will be able to stop for water, the course will have volunteers stationed about, there will be signage to prevent wrong turns and EMT’s on site.

Snacks and water will be available after the race. There are bathrooms nearby if needed. Raffle tickets will also be available for purchase (one raffle ticket is included for 5k and 10k registrants).

Will I be able to bring my well-behaved dog on the run with me?

Unfortunately not. Some dogs run great with their owners but might get excited and jump on or in front of another racer. There will also be a lot children and not all of them love your cuddly pet as much as you do. Safety first. We appreciate your understanding.

What are the ages for the kid’s run?

While the cut-off age is 10, the Kids 1k is ideal for children 8 and under. It is a short distance and may challenge your little ones. Some of the younger children have their parents running with them, however, there is someone who leads this run to keep the kids on track. Many kids enjoy ‘taking off’ and running with their friends.

What do kids do while their parent(s) are racing?

The Kids 1k begins 45 minutes after the 5k/10k start. There may be other parents and volunteers that can supervise kids while parents are racing, otherwise we hope you can bring another parent or guardian.
Keep the timing in mind. Those running the 5k may complete their own event and be back in time to join or watch the start of the Kids 1k.

Will I still get a t-shirt if I register on the morning of the race?

No, t-shirts will not be available for any registration that takes place after September 11th, 2023.

What’s the elevation?

The CLTR elevation is approximately 7,000 feet above sea level. Like any high altitude event, it is advisable to stay hydrated and well-rested. Long Valley Fire Department will be on site to assist with any medical needs that may arise.

Where can I get race updates?

Follow-us on Facebook and Instagram for If for some reason this event needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather or hazardous air due to smoke we would make that call the morning of the event.

I need more helping planning a visit – where should I look?

The race is located in Crowley Lake, a community in Mono County that is just south of the Town of Mammoth Lakes. There is a ton to do and see, enough that it’s worth spending a few days to explore the area. We highly recommend visiting Mono Lake and Bodie Ghost Town if you have time. The end of September is also the beginning of the incredible fall colors season in Mono County.

To request a visitor guide or with other questions on where to stay and what to do in Mono County, please visit MonoCounty.org, VisitMammoth.com, and/or call the Mono County Tourism staff with questions at 800-845-7922.

Do you need volunteers?
