Local Area Trail Races in Ventura County and Surrounding Areas

Pre-Race at the Bulldog 25K Trail Race at Malibu Creek State Park in August 2012

We're quickly approaching another new year so it's a great time to start planning your 2013 race schedule. If you don't usually run trails and trail races, think about trying it out! Dirt surfaces are a lot easier on your body than the roads and its a lot of fun getting out there in nature! The "feel" of trail runs to me generally feels more relaxed than road runs too.

Local Ventura County area trail runs in 2012 included the races below. We will provide 2013 updates in the CVG Upcoming Races section.
