50th Anniversary Lone Pine Time Trials

Manzanar Airport

About this event



For 2021, the Lone Pine Time Trials Committee celebrates our 50th Anniversary/51st running – 50 years of flat-out-fun! 

You’ll get a big course that’s over 2 miles long, run one way on Saturday and the other on Sunday.  Depending on the turnout, competitors will get at least four timed runs each day and fun runs are always a good possibility after the final group is done. This course will provide a challenge for all whether in modified, prepared, street prepared, stock or vintage. Don’t be left to hear the stories from all your friends of a great weekend – Be There! Check out this descriptive video from 2017.
