John Wayne Grit Series ? Alabama Hills
8:00 AM
Lone Pine
Description:
Bring your John Wayne grit to the trails and #RunToFightCancer.

The Alabama Hills boast some of the most beautiful and rugged trails in the Eastern Sierras. Explore this magnificent course set in the shadow of Mt. Whitney – the tallest mountain in the contiguous U.S. of A. You’ll push your limits and stay dusty on dirt roads and single track trails that wind under blue skies, soaring snow-capped peaks and natural stone arches.

Experience the iconic western backdrop where John Wayne filmed 13 movies including How The West Was Won. After you’ve conquered the course, join us for a cowboy-style celebration at the John Wayne Grit Down!

As John Wayne said, "A goal, a love and a dream give you total control over your body and your life.” We can’t think of a better way to describe this event that will change lives - yours and those fighting cancer.
