Run the Beast, Feed the Hungry

The Master’s University & Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF) are teaming up to collect non-perishable food for packing CHF “Food Paks”. CHF is a local organization dedicated to delivering food and the gospel to children in need. Participants are invited to donate non-perishable items (see list below) and run/walk/hike the Beast to raise awareness and food for hungry children.

*Participants are welcome to come any time between 7:30 - 10:00, but the run begins at 7:30 and food donations may not be accepted after 10:00

The trail is 100% dirt and approximately 4.8 miles to the very top, with approximately 2000 feet of elevation gain. Participants are welcome to run or hike ANY portion of the trail, there is no requirement to go all the way to the top. However, if you do make it to the top, there is an outstanding view of the Santa Clarita/Newhall area! Additionally, there is a pile of rocks at the very top signed by previous runners/hikers/bikers who have conquered The Beast. There will be a sharpie at the top if you wish to leave your mark!

There is free parking at the Park and Ride at the base of the Elsmere Canyon Trail near the trailhead

There will be two portable toilets located near the trailhead.

There is NO ENTRY FEE. However, pre-registered participants will recieve a free t-shirt for supporting CHF.
