About

This water station is at the finish line on the summit of Mt. Baldy, at 10,064 feet. Working at this water station requires a 3-mile hike to get there. Volunteers will be driven to the highest point on the mountain in a 4WD vehicle and will hike to the summit from there. When the race is over, volunteers will hike back to the vehicles.

The water station serves water, fruit and snacks to runners. The fruit needs to be cut up and water set out in cups before runners arrive.

Volunteers must be experienced hikers, especially at high altitude. (People with asthma could have difficulty.) Volunteers need to be prepared for any weather conditions. There is no shade or shelter. It may be a sunny day or may be cold and raining.

The Volunteers will receive the Run-to-the-Top t-shirt, a lunch certificate for the Mt. Baldy Lodge Restaurant (in the Village) for use any day, and transportation (including a ski lift ride down to the parking lot, if desired).
