P1 - The 25th Annual Hobo Run

Experience the 25th Annual Hobo Run 2024!

Come Jeep like a Hobo for a day on the Kingston Peak Loop Trail above Alice with Patrol 1 (the Hobos).

As a Hobo for a day, at checkpoints along the trail, you’ll pick up supplies any self-respecting Hobo needs to survive. Each item will be assigned a point value. During the lunch stop (bring your own), points will be tallied. The Hobo with the highest point total will be rewarded with the 25th Annual Top Hobo Trophy. 2nd and 3rd place will also get prizes. For the more adventurous, there will be an egg toss.

Our Sponsors:

... Choice Image is supplying the official Hobo Run bandanas.

... 4Wheel Parts-Sheridan is supplying trophies, dash plaques and other prizes.



Beyond the quest to be the Top Hobo, there will be Jeeping! The plan is to take Cumberland Gulch to Washoe Gulch to Yankee Hill to Kingston Peak. Kingston may be closed due to snowpack, so only capable vehicles will return via Miner’s Gulch (others can return via Tolland or Apex Roads).

During registration, a dash plaque and souvenir Hobo Run bandana (to hold your survival items) will be given to each participant, along with a goodie bag, and an instruction sheet for day.

Please only sign up here if you are seriously going, limited to 14 Jeeps. “Jeep, Jeep”!!
