Mt. Baldy summit (finish line) water station for the Run-to-the-Top trail race

Devil's Backbone

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 and transportation (including a ski lift ride down to the parking lot, if desired).

Description

San Antonio Canyon Town Hall, a nonprofit 501(c)(4), is preparing for its 50th annual Labor Day fundraiser, the Mt. Baldy Run-to-the-Top (RTTT), which will be held on September 7, 2015. This is one of California's most popular mountain trail runs, a very challenging 7-mile+ trail run with ~4,000′ of elevation gain. Beginning at ~6,000′ elevation, the final mile, the steepest, is above timberline. The finish is at the summit of beautiful Mt. San Antonio (Mt. Baldy) at 10,064′.

Town Hall is excited to reach this 50 th milestone. We’re planning a celebration at the Ski Lifts, complete with live bands, for all runners, volunteers, sponsors, and spectators. And, for the very first time, we’re offering a 5k opportunity that will follow the initial RTTT course and then end at the Ski Lifts, at 7,800′.

The funding that the RTTT provides Town Hall allows us to continue to make annual donations to the Mt. Baldy Fire Department and West Valley Search & Rescue; and to maintain an emergency fund for disaster relief. Last August, Mt. Baldy suffered a catastrophic storm. Town Hall was in the position to respond to the needs of residents and the volunteer repair and clean-up crews. We continue to fund safety projects for the local community and tens of thousands of visitors who hike, bike, and play in the local wilderness.

We couldn't hold the RTTT without volunteers.
