Master the Mountain
The 20th Annual Master the Mountain will take place on Saturday, April 21st at 9 AM. This is both a 5K Fun run/walk and a 10k run event and is hosted by Permian Basin Events.
Registration can be done online prior to race day at permianbasinevents.com, where cost is $25 per person for the 5k, and $30 per person for the 10K. Registration will still be available on Saturday morning, however, the price will increase. The money collected for this race will be donated to The Life Center of Big Spring and the Big Spring State Park.
Packet pickup starts at 7:45 AM, and park gates will close to vehicles at 8:45 AM. It’s noted that it takes 7 to 8 minutes to drive to the top, so participants are asked to plan accordingly.
Also, be advised that parking is limited at the top and carpooling is encouraged. The course will remain closed from 8:50 until the last runner crosses the finish line, which is usually a little over 1 hour. Cars will be allowed to leave at that time, so plan to stay until 10:20 AM.
Awards will begin at 10 AM for the 5k and 10:15 AM for the 10k.
