Due to a series of chronic and persistent health problems, our Race Director is forced to announce the postponement of the 2013 Mt Disappointment 50k and 50 mile races. We apologize for the late announcement but assure you that every effort was made to carry on with this year’s running events. We are planning on rescheduling the races in 2014. Those who have already paid will be refunded their race entry fees. Again, please accept our apologies and our invitation to join us next year. If you have further questions please contact Gary Hilliard or Fausto Rowlan.

The Mt Disappointment Staff


Welcome to the Mt. Disappointment Endurance Runs where you can experience some of the finest trails and canyons of the San Gabriel Mountains. Our course is incredibly scenic, yet strenuous and challenging. We feature fully stocked aid stations as you become part of the semi-wilderness surroundings. The final climb to the summit of Mt Wilson up the Kenyon Devore Trail will test each runner with terrain and surroundings that are truly unique to these canyons.

We also have a kids run just prior to the 50 kilometer awards ceremony. Our trail maintenance group maintains all the trails we use. We have t-shirts, finisher’s medals, awards, raffle prizes, and a post race meal for the runners. Have an Angeles National Forest adventure…and run the Mt. Disappointment Endurance Race.
