This will be the 43rd Run Through the Pines

Save the date and please follow us on our Run Through the Pines Facebook and Instagram page.

The Run Through the Pines is a destination run and a San Bernardino, Rim Mountain Community Event. It 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 through a pine tree forest.  Runners (and walkers) can enjoy a semi-paved course at a 4,720-foot elevation, which makes it a perfect little challenge for mountain locals and especially our friends from down the hill. Race day staging is at the San Moritz Lodge “Meadow” area near the Lake Gregory Company bait and tackle shop. We encourage participants of all levels, children in strollers, pets on a leash, and especially teams/groups.

Lake Gregory is located in Crestline, a charming little town filled with one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants. We encourage all runners to stay the weekend and enjoy the town.

The Run Through the Pines is a mountain community event hosted by the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District and the Lake Gregory Company. The run relies on sponsors and/or local businesses and organizations to enhance the runner's experience on race day. If you would like more information on how to become a sponsor, please call the Park District Office, (909) 337-7275. 


We love our volunteers and honestly, the event couldn't happen without them! We are currently looking for Registration and Race Kit Pick-up volunteers, Water Station Volunteers, Start/Finish Line Volunteers, and lots of course marshals to ensure a safe and fun event for everyone. Contact the Park District Office if you would like to volunteer. 


Parking is offered onsite at the San Moritz Lodge and in Lake Gregory parking lots. Please do not park directly in the Crest Forest Senior Citizens parking area or near their building, you will be towed.
