Saturday Run (Aug. 10)

We have been having so much fun running with the CA Cruisers lately…we thought we’d join them for another run down in Tustin.

We will meet at Citrus Ranch Park at 7:00 a.m.  The address is:  2910 Portola Parkway, Tustin 92782  One way to get there is to take Chapman Ave. (by Santiago Canyon College), right on Jamboree and right on Portola Parkway.

We will run south from Citrus Park.  It is basically a flat trail alongside pavement.  There are parks with bathrooms along the way.  The first park is at 0.7 miles.  Below are the mileages along the way so you can decide where to turn around.
