From family events to athletic challenges, music and art weekends Mono County has a full calendar of fun for any taste.
The Graniteman Challenge, sponsored by the High Sierra Triathlon Club, is a unique three-day combination of the Granite to Granite Swim, a 2.4-mile swim in June Lake on Sept. 8, the Mammoth Gran Fondo, a 102-mile bike ride, Sept. 9, and the Tioga Pass Run, a 12.4-mile run up Tioga Pass on Sunday, Sept. 10.
