Half Marathon
Route information
The Valencia Trail Race features three distances to run, a 10k, Half Marathon, and 50k Ultra race through the awesome trails and killer hills of Valencia, CA.
This is a trail race that contains a good amount of physical challenge with combined elevation gains ranging from approximately 1250 feet for 10k runners to over 8000 feet for 50k runners. It is recommended that runners train for these elevation gains in the weeks leading up to the race.
Each course is a loop with the longer distances breaking off at specific points to extend the distance from the previous loop. From the start all runners will climb a 500-foot elevation gain to get up into the mountain trails reaching station #1 and begin the course loops.
All participants will begin at the trail head off 29889 San Francisquito Canyon Road in Valencia.
10k runners simply follow the 10k course and hug the San Francisquito Motorway as they snake in between beautiful mountainous scenery. There is a final zig-zag turn for participants to navigate at the 5.4-mile mark before they head towards the finish line on a fast downward section.
Half Marathon runners will follow the 10k loop to station #4, then go left to begin following the BLUE loop to station #5, then station #6.
They will then return to the Canyon at the 9.8 mile mark and then rise up to Tapia Canyon peak by the power tower.
After submitting the peak, participants will float downwards towards the finish line.
50k runners will follow the 10k loop to station #4, then go Left to begin following the Blue loop to station #5, then station #6, then station #3 returning getting back onto a section of the Orange loop to complete the Blue loop coming back to station #4.
Next, 50k runners take the Left fork to begin the Purple Loop which contains periods of high drops and elevation around the 32 - 38k mark.
Finally, there's a gentle period of descent as runners will slope 200m down a jaggedy mountain to come to a finish at the 50k mark.
