RACE #3: ALISO & WOOD CANYON WILDERNESS PARK & LAGUNA NIGUEL REGIONAL PARK - August 5th, 2017

THE RACE

Racers will enjoy the varied terrain at our Aliso and Wood Canyon cross country race. All racers descend the infamous Rock-It trail making this a classic no one will forget. A fantastic start/finish venue in the shade of Laguna Niguel Regional Park gives this event a spectacular family friendly atmosphere.

The race does not loop back through the main venue, so the feed zone will be at the base of Mathis. If you have race support, that is where they should be.

Laguna Niguel Regional Park is a beautiful park located directly across Alicia Parkway from Aliso & Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, and this will be the site of our main venue and is where all of the following will be held: day of packet pickup, pre-race meeting, awards, expo and kids race.
