The 33rd Annual AC-100 Endurance Race Will Begin and End In Wrightwood This Year


The annual event and race in Wrightwood will begin and end in the mountain community.

The 33rd Angeles Crest 100 Mile Endurance Race (AC100 Race) will begin Saturday morning, August 6, 2022 at 5am in Wrightwood and end the next day in Wrightwood on Sunday the 7th at 5pm.  The race will be an Out and Back Race due to extensive fire damage to the trails from the Bobcat Fire (2020) and very heavy December rainstorms.  The USFS will not allow the race this year through the Chantry Flats/Mt Wilson area due the closures from the fire and heavy rains.  With this one-time change the race will be 101.04 miles.  The turn-around point at Shortcut Saddle is 50.7 miles.   Due to the difficulty of the return leg to Wrightwood the finish time has been increased from 33 hours to 36 hours.  The highest elevation of the race is Mount Baden Powell at 9252 feet.  The AC100 runners come from all over the world to participate.  Normally the race begins 5am in Wrightwood and ends 2pm the following day at Loma Alta Park in Altadena (100 miles of trails and roads). 

Set your clocks for an early Saturday morning wake-up call and cheer on 250 plus runners while you enjoy your morning coffee.  The race will start at the Wrightwood Community Building parking lot at 5am.  The Finish-line celebration is on Sunday from 3-6pm in Wrightwood with music, food, and drinks at local businesses.
