Winter Race Series

2021 would have been the 13th annual 5k Winter Race Series hosted by Inyo County Search and Rescue and Sage to Summit in Bishop, CA. This race series has been a fundraiser to support our local volunteer Search and Rescue team. All race donations support medical training and the General Fund for the all-volunteer Inyo County SAR. This year, due to the dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases both locally and around the country, we have made the difficult decision to switch to a virtual 2021 race series. 

Each race will be 5k. Below, there is a link to the GPX file of the 5k course from previous years; however, due to the pandemic, your race entry can be a 5k (or longer) run anywhere! In order to submit your race result, submit a GPX file of your run/Strava/etc. or just your time and distance. Results without GPS verification will not be eligible for prizes, but they are just as fun!

You may sign up individually or as a three person team; Local Businesses, Agencies, Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS and Public teams are all welcome to run as a team. To register as a team, see the registration links below for instructions.  All three members must register for and run all three races in order to qualify for team standings. After the third race, the fastest team over the three races will be the winner.

There will be three races in the Series that are each open for one week. Your run must be run between 00:00 Sunday morning and 23:59 Saturday night, and results must be submitted by 23:59 on the Sunday after the race window. There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place recognition for each race (for all three races) in the following categories Male, Female, Kids, (12 and under). There will be an overall winner for the Series in Male, Female, Kids, and Team.
