Billy Goat ½ Marathon is not cancelled. However, it is likely, but not certain, that this race will be postponed due to COVID19 social distancing state orders. We are currently looking at early October in the event that the race is postponed. We hope to have a final update in May.
In the event of postponement, all registrations will be rolled-over to the October 2020 date.
If you are unable to make that October date, you can roll your registration over to Billy Goat 2021 or use your registration for the ½ marathon distance at the Saddleback Marathon scheduled for December 5, 2020.
Please contact me if you have a special circumstance.
Get ready for a sunrise start to beat the heat on this out-and-back footrace in the Cleveland National Forest. Billy Goat begins and ends in the shadows of the Saddleback Mountains in Corona, California and climbs up to The Main Divide in The Cleveland National Forest. After climbing to the top, run along The Main Divide where you'll enjoy faraway views reaching for miles before heading back for refreshments and awards at the finish line.
This year's Billy Goat will start/finish at Eagle Glen Golf Club in Corona, CA. The climb will begin by crossing Bedford Wash and heading up to the plateaus where you'll quickly meet up with Bedford Road. Zig-zag up the mountain on this truck trail to the Main Divide. From there, continue climbing to the base of Bald Peak for a total of 3,500' of elevation gain before heading back down for a downhill Billy Goat finish.
