Get outdoors and explore the scenic mountain views around the lake with family and friends at the 42nd annual Run Through the Pines 10K and 5K run/walk at Lake Gregory in Crestline on Saturday, Aug. 12.

The Run Through the Pines is a San Bernardino Rim Mountain community event and is one of the longest “running” runs in Southern California (the first one was in 1979). It features a 10K and 5K run (or walk) around Lake Gregory and is organized by sponsors, vendors, and volunteers from all over the mountain.

Runners and walkers can enjoy a semi-paved roadway around Lake Gregory which passes scenic mountain and lake views. The run is at a 4,720 feet elevation, which makes it a perfect little challenge for mountain locals and especially those folks down the hill. Race day staging is at The Lake Gregory Company. We encourage participants of all levels, children in strollers, pets on a leash, and especially teams/groups to participate.

There will be music, water stations, chip timing and computerized race results. The course will be patrolled by emergency communications as well. Custom trophies will be awarded for first place winners in all age categories.

  • Pre-registration is encouraged as t-shirts may not be available the day of the race. Online registration and course maps can be viewed here
  • Event survey can be viewed here
  • The event is sponsored by the Lake Gregory Company and the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District. Follow the Run Through The Pines Facebook and Instagram pages for event updates.
