Palos Verdes Supports 2023 “The Hills Are Alive” Race

Palos Verdes home owners can support our local “The Hills Are Alive Race” which benefits Rolling Hills Estates Pepper Tree Foundation.  This race is considered to be one of the oldest and finest trail races in Southern California.  The Pepper Tree Foundation was established in 1982 to promote citizen contributions and donations to enrich the quality of  life in Rolling Hills Estates.  The foundation has provided trees, benches, picnic tables and other items which enhance and preserve the city parks and open spaces.  This year the Pepper Tree Foundation will partner with UCLA Health and this 41st annual race will take place on Saturday, August 5, 2023, beginning at 8:00 a.m.

Participants will enjoy running or walking on the soft packed bridle trails throughout scenic Rolling Hills Estates.  The race starts and finishes at Ernie Howlett Park located at 25851 Hawthorne Blvd, Rolling Hills Estates, taking runners/walkers through a scenic trail route in the city’s bridle trails and ending back at the park. There will be trophies presented to the top male and female finishers in the 10K Run and 5K Runs.  All finishers will receive a custom designed finishers medal.
