Route information
The Vista Verde Skyline Run is the ultimate trail race event to add to your fall running calendar.
The courses take you through a route filled with various stunning backdrops, from expansive vistas of the Pacific Coast, to wide open trails rolling through open grassy meadows, and past serene ponds and over bubbling creeks. This route is sure to distract your mind from the miles being paced underfoot.
All routes will start in the northern part of Skyline Ridge Open Space Preserve, and will feature a number of big climbs that will get your legs and lungs burning, but will be rewarded with epic views.
Each route will be marked with striking colored ribbons to keep you on track and will be outlined at the prerace briefing.

  • Marathon, Half and 50k runners will have a DIY water stop at the 4 mile mark.
