The Leona Divide 50 was the brainchild of Bob Kimmerly who in late 1991 with his friends John Swallow and Don Hughes mapped out a 50 mile course through the beautiful Angeles National Forest near Lake Hughes. A portion of the race traveled the Leona Divide Truck Trail and passed through Leona Divide twice, hence the name. Losing his battle with cancer in January of 1992, Bob never saw his dream, but his family and friends made sure it became a reality in April of 1992. 

There has now been a 50k option added to this beautiful course, and all runners will get to run on the historic Pacific Crest Trail. With incredible volunteers, well stocked aid stations, great swag, and a delicious finish line feast this is an event not to be missed!
