It’s a Friday Fun Run or walk. A chance for seasoned runners to inspire new runners. A summer celebration with a beer. Everyone should be there with the intention of having a good time and enjoying the spirit of trail running. This is a good opportunity for road runners to test their legs on trails. If you are racing over the weekend, you can enjoy an easy shake out run. If you want to test your 5K trail running speed, you will have a variety of trails to do so during the 4 different routes.
This is our final run in the series and we will be exploring the urban trails of Balboa Park. Meet at parking lot on corner of Morley Field Drive and Upas for the run and we will head over to the Modern Times Flavor Dome afterwards for a post run brew!
The route is out and back. We will give you the location to turn around. If you do not think you will finish the 5K in under 60 minutes, turn around once you have reached 25 minutes. This is to allow more time on the return, in case you are tired. The goal is for everyone to be finished in under 1 hour.
Safety is very important as well as trail etiquette. Please bring what you need to self support as there will not be any support available en route. We suggest you bring a hand bottle and one energy bar if you will need 40 minutes or more to complete the 5K. Also, please leave no trace on the trails and if you need to use a bush, please do so responsibly. This is a fun community event and not permitted. Don’t be the person that ruins it for everyone.
