From the Trails to the Track

LEONA DIVIDE 2019

1 min read

The Leona Divide 50 was the brainchild of Bob Kimmerly who in late 1991 with his friends John Swallow and Don Hughes mapped out a 50 mile course through the beautiful Angeles National Forest near Lake Hughes. A portion of the race traveled the Leona Divide Truck Trail and passed through Leona Divide twice, hence the name. Losing his battle with cancer in January of 1992, Bob never saw his dream, but his family and friends made sure it became a reality in April of 1992.

Thank you @keirahenninger for putting on another awesome #leonadivide for us. This race really has become an institution…
I had a great time out there capturing some images. @jessemhaynes ran a strong race as he passed by some #50mile history
