The course begins in beautiful Brand Park, climbs steadily to one of the highest points in the Verdugo Mountains, and then heads back downhill for a fast descent to the finish.  Breathtaking views of the L.A. Basin, the San Fernando Valley, and the Pacific Ocean await you at every turn.  From the race’s highest point, at 2,670 feet above sea level, the panoramic view of the San Gabriel Mountains is truly spectacular.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE VERDUGO MOUNTAINS 10K:

 “Your race was excellent!  There was a buzz around the finish line that I have not seen in quite a while.  A lot of long time local runners were making immediate comparisons to the Mt Wilson Trail Race and  Baldy Run to the Top, which are very long time and established cult races, as you surely know...  so I am thinking that you have created an instant classic with a modern feel to it! “

Bruce Bornhurst ~ La Canada, CA

 “I just wanted to say thank you to all the people that put on such a great race...  I can’t wait ‘til next year!” 

 Lili Hernandez ~ 1st Place Overall Female
