Review of Griffith Park Trail 10K by martyracer

Posted by: on November, 18 2012

Great Event!

My first 10k event, after running lots of half marathons and marathons, and wanted to try something different. I am absolutely hooked into trail running.

Registration online was simple, and bib and shirt pick up was easy enough. Super Cool Shirt! Sunday traffic was non-existent, and getting to the parking lot and start line was uncomplicated. Start time was on-time, and the race began. It was awesome.

There was a little rain overnight, but that barely put a stinger on the trail. Aide stations along the route provided water, electrolytes and snacks, but I often bring my own in my camelback. The route was well located with easy to see ribbons along the way. Finish line was fantastic with lots of goodies at the end. Awesome Medal – I love it!

I definitely plan to run the half marathon and 10k on the same weekend when they offer it. Yay!
