About this event

8th Annual Ryan Hall's "Conquer the Wall"

Teams encouraged and recieve a 15% discount.  Must register as a team.  High School teams get 25% off.

Helps raise money for Big Bear High School Cross Country Team, who has used this course to train champions for almost 20 years. 

HISTORY... When Olympian Ryan Hall began his journey as a runner, it all started here.  Ryan grew up only 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.
