Saturday, May 27, 2017 celebrates the 109th anniversary and 51st 
running of the Mount Wilson Trail Race (MWTR).

 The 8.6 mile running race is a unique, historic event, revered by 
the Sierra Madre community and by the 350 competitors who 
measure themselves against the mountain. As the second oldest 
run trail race in California, the Mount Wilson Trail Race is rich in 
history and has over the years developed strong ties to community 
members and organizations alike, making this event one to look 
forward to year after year. 

This Memorial Day weekend tradition brings together over 1,000 
runners, volunteers, and spectators. Activities include training 

runs for adults and kids, Kids’ T-shirt Design Contest, Pre-Race 
Pasta Dinner and Raffle and much more. Runners enjoy the small 
town charm of Sierra Madre prior to and after their grueling, 
yet scenic climb of the Mount Wilson Trail. From novice to elite 
runners, this event has something for everyone!

 Participants can register in person at Sierra Madre City Hall or on 
line by clicking the link below. 

 For more volunteering information please contact Clarissa Lowe 
or Tim Shepard at (626) 355-5278,
