Welcome to the Marlin Crawler Round-Up!

NEW for 2019: For the first time in event history we have ported our decade-old PDF Registration Flyer to our website! This platform provides a future for a smooth and improved Round-Up registration experience which we will fully leverage for next year's event!

NEW for 2019: We are now supporting the Rubicon Trail department of El Dorado County by splitting event proceeds 50/50 between the Rubicon Trail Foundation and the Rubicon Trail Park's Department! Both organizations have committed 100% of Round-Up proceeds for the Rubicon Trail, and we will have representatives from both the Rubicon Trail Foundation and the El Dorado Park's Department on-site to field any question about funding and how your raffle proceeds will be used to improve the future health of the Rubicon Trail!

Event History

The Marlin Crawler Round-Up has become one of the largest Toyota-based 4WD events in the world. Held every fall on the world-famous Rubicon trail, the Round-Up has developed into the premiere trail-ride sponsor for the Rubicon Trail Foundation (RTF), a federally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to the future health of the Rubicon trail (see for more info).

Event Online Community Forum

The Round-Up has it's own Discussion Board on our forum found at Round-Up Talk! We have posts and information on every Round-Up past and present so please give it a visit!

Unique Customer Appreciation Experience

This event was first held in the fall of 2001 as a way for Marlin to thank his customers for their support and trust in his products. It was a simple, free event & included a BBQ lunch. After 2003, our appreciation was expanded to include the efforts of the Rubicon Trail Foundation. The event has seen tremendous growth ever since!

Each year participants from the Marlin Crawler Community take on the grueling 17-mile Rubicon trail on an epic journey to the beautiful and historic Springs Campground. Part of the uniqueness and excitement of the event is how members from our large online community forum come together for the first time, putting faces to usernames and getting to see Build Projects in person. The event has attracted forum members from as far away as Florida & Hawaii, as well as international members from Canada, Denmark, Germany, and Australia! But the event isn’t only for Marlin Crawler forum members and Toyota owners! Rigs of all bolt sizes are always on hand and are sure to turn heads! If your rig is Rubicon-capable, then please register today! We’d love to wheel the ‘Con with ya!

Come join the fun!

This Sep 14th we will be celebrating our 18th year of giving back to the Rock Crawling community. Whether you enter the trail from Loon Lake or from Tahoe Lake, get ready for an event to remember!
