This is a fun little romp through Upper Las Virgenes Canyon that may include some mud and puddle hopping depending on the weather in April! Located at the west end of the San Fernando Valley, these beautiful trails take you high up on Lasky Mesa to the site of Hollywood filming of "Gone With The Wind" and "Django Unchained" before bringing you down into Las Virgenes Canyon where you will run through lush riparian foliage abundant with spring wildflowers. Yes, there are hills, but "what goes up also comes back down".
Known as "The Friendliest Race in L.A.", the Valley Crest Half Marathon is a popular trail half-marathon on historic Mulholland fire road that treats runners to beautiful spring foliage and magnificent valley and ocean views. In its 17th year, this challenging but fast race makes perfect competition for the serious runner and is also "user-friendly" enough to be a great first-timer trail run! The course is entirely on city-maintained fire roads in early June and typically has cool overcast weather. We look forward to having you run with us!
