Lasse Viren 20K Trail Run

October 28, 2013 · Point Mugu, CA

Distance: 20K

Staging Area / Check-In
Our staging area is at campsite 15 and 17, which is in a really nice setting close to the trailhead. Please see image at bottom of this email to see where we are talking about.

***Arrive early on race morning because parking is limited and you may have to park relatively far away and walk. Also please be aware the actual starting line is about 1/2 mile from the trailhead/registration area. The campgrounds are full so it is going to be more crowded than normal. You may have to park 1/2 mile away from check-in and jog in. You can park on PCH where marked (most people park between La Jolla Canyon and Sycamore Canyon by the big sand hills.) Limited State Beach Parking is $12.00. Free on the Coast Highway ONLY WHERE MARKED. Be Early. May have to walk ½ mile to the check-in area and another half mile to the actual start line, which is 1/2 mile from the trailhead.

I mapped out a rough outline of the course HERE. Play around with the settings to get a better idea of where the race takes place. The race starts about 1/2 mile up from the initial marker you see (which is the finish.) The starting marker is just before the 12-mile marker (make sure mile markers are turned on.) Also make sure you look at the map in satellite view. This site is really fun once you get familiar with it. Use it to measure your training runs!
