About This Event

When Olympian Ryan Hall began his journey as a runner, it all started here. Ryan grew up 5 minutes away from Snow Summit and incorporated weekly 1 mile timed runs up "The Wall" ski run. The current high school cross country team in Big Bear still utilizes this course every summer for their training, hoping to reach the heights that Ryan Hall established. Now FOUR State Champions later... it seems to be working.
