Dragon's Back Fun Run | CANCELED

Date / Time
Sep 25 / 8:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Note From The Event Organizer

Amidst another historic California fire season, we hope this finds you healthy, happy, and if possible, enjoying smoke free skies. To those directly impacted by the California fires – including many of our own family members - we hold you in our thoughts and are thankful to the frontline workers still fighting to save our communities.

It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Dragon’s Back Fun Run. While locally we are under no direct impact of fire or smoke, the ongoing forest closure impacts the entirety of our course and has limited emergency resources regionally secondary to the fires north of Mammoth Lakes. We have been in constant discussions with the Inyo National Forest and local partners, and with no insight as to whether the temporary forest closure will be extended beyond 9/17/21, we – along with numerous other local events – will be forced to cancel. We hope those traveling from around California and out of state have time to reschedule their trips.

We will offer full refunds or a rollover to the 2022 event – your entry this year is discounted compared to the 2022 event. This refund or roll over can be done through your registration history on or via the "Edit" link on your receipt. If no decision is made by 9/24/21 we will automatically roll you over into 2022. We thank you for understanding this difficult situation and cannot wait to share the entire multi-distance trail fest with you in 2022! Be sure to signup for specific details about the 2022 event at
