Tioga Pass Run
12.4 miles—only one hill!
Join the camaraderie of the Tioga Pass Run: 3,200 feet of elevation gain over a 12.4-mile-long course along the shoulder of one of the most scenic highways in the country. Proceeds from the run benefit the Mono Lake Committee.
The 2020 Tioga Pass Run has been canceled due to COVID-19.
As of mid-July we have made the decision to cancel this year's Tioga Pass Run. While it is disappointing to not be able to celebrate the event's 40th year, we believe it is the right choice given the global health situation and its effects here on the ground in California.
If you have any questions please contact Office Manager Claire Landowski at (760) 647-6595 x120.
Runners take off in front of the Mono Lake Committee in Lee Vining.
Located on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Tioga Pass is the eastern gateway to Yosemite National Park. The start line is in the town of Lee Vining at an elevation of 6,781 feet above sea level and the finish line is at the top of Tioga Pass at 9,945 feet.
This run allows you to truly enjoy the beauty of the Eastern Sierra from Mono Lake to Tioga Pass. Proceeds from the Run benefit the Mono Lake Committee.
Be prepared for any weather, from warm late summer temperatures to early winter snow flurries. Weather conditions can vary greatly from the start to finish line. There will be aid stations at miles 3, 6, 9, and the finish. Car shuttles will be available to transport gear bags to the finish line during the Run and to provide participants with transportation back to Lee Vining after the Run.
