XTERRA Crystal Cove
February 24, 2019
This event has been postponed from December 8 to February 24, 2019 due to the weather and resulting trail conditions. The park is a sensitive habitat and when there is copious amounts of rain (like this week) and not enough time for the trails to dry out, the park closes to protect the trails.
Join us for the XTERRA holiday trail run in beautiful Crystal Cove State Park! Race #3 takes place at Crystal Cove State Park, which is located five miles south of Newport Beach and/or five miles north of Laguna Beach on December 8, 2018. The race features two distances – an introductory 6k trail run and a longer 15k trail run for the more experienced runner. This all takes place on fire roads and single track trails in the El Moro area of Crystal Cove State Park. Race field is limited, so enter early. This is the perfect trail run to keep you in shape over the holiday season.
Please note that both the 15k course and 6k course close at 11:00 a.m., so you must finish before then!Register Now
