About the Run Through the Pines
Run Through the Pines is one of Southern California's longest "running" runs starting in August of 1979.
The run features a 10K, 5K run or walk, and racewalk. Walkers/Runners 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 at Lake Gregory Educational and Community Center, 24740 San Moritz Way, Crestline, CA 92325.
Music, Water stations, chip timing and computerized race results, course patrolled by Emergency Communications, distinctive event t-shirts with custom design (one size fits all), custom trophies for 1st place winners, custom event medals, post-race refreshments, and FRESH COOL MOUNTAIN AIR!
The Run Through the Pines is a mountain community event hosted by the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District. The town of Crestline is filled with lots of quaint shops, delicious dining choices, and fun stuff to do. We encourage participants to stay and enjoy Lake Gregory, Downtown Crestline, and Top Town!

Sock Donation and Crazy Sock Contest
This year, the STAGE Foundation is inviting you to “Share a Pair” and will be hosting a Sock Drive to benefit the homeless and near-homeless on our mountain. Event attendees and participants who donate a 6-pack or larger of new socks (any size or gender) will receive 1 raffle ticket for a chance to win a gift certificate from a retailer such as the Huntington Library, The Broad, Raging Waters, Malibu Wine Safari, Magic Mountain or Rubio’s valued between $5 to $89.00. All donations will be forwarded to the Mountain Homeless Coalition. Other donations such as new personal and toiletry items will also be accepted. A representative from the Mountain Homeless Coalition will be available with information about their organization as well as resources for those in need.
Who doesn’t like to rock a pair of crazy socks for a good cause? For a nominal entry fee (100% of entry fees will also be donated to Mountain Homeless Coalition) you can enter your socks into the STAGE Foundation’s crazy sock contest. Winners (1st, 2nd and 3rd place) will get a trophy worthy of the fireplace mantle. Additionally, the first-place winner will receive first choice of one gift certificate (listed above). May the best pair win!
