Tuesday Run (Sept. 16)

We’ll meet near the Snail’s Pace store at 6:00 p.m. We gather in front of the In Flower floral shop, which is located between Snail’s Pace and Lascari’s. We’ll be doing the Craig Park to Tri-City Park run. It is approximately 4.4 miles if you run once around Tri-City Park lake. If you run twice around the lake, that will make it a 5 mile run.

Craig Park to Tri-City Park Run (4.46 miles)

Conquer the Canyon’ Wildcat Run:    Randy, who ran with us once earlier in the year, sent me this info.

For 25 years, the perennial league champion and CIF standout Brea Olinda High School cross country teams have hosted the Brea Invitational at Carbon Canyon Regional Park each fall.  Now, for the first time, the school is making the run available to the public.

The 3 mile course takes runners through Orange County’s only giant redwood grove, alongside a serene lake, through rugged canyon trails and to the top of a ridge that offers stunning views of Catalina Island and the Palos Verdes peninsula.

After the run, stay to watch some of Southern California’s finest prep runners take on the same course as they race to win the Brea Invitational.

All proceeds benefit the Brea Olinda High cross country programs. For more information go to http://www.BreaXC.com
