Welcome to the Marlin Crawler Round-Up!

The Marlin Crawler Round-Up is 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, with more than 200 rigs and 300 people participating each year.

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 trail repair and future health efforts of the Rubicon Trail. 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, Japan, 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!

How the Round-Up supports the Rubicon Trail

The Marlin Crawler Round-Up supports the Rubicon Trail by splitting event proceeds with the Rubicon Trail Foundation and the Rubicon Trail department of El Dorado County. Both organizations commit 100% of Round-Up proceeds to the Rubicon Trail, and representatives from both organizations will be on-site to field questions about how your raffle proceeds will be used to improve the future use and health of the Rubicon Trail!
