Parks and Open Space Foundation
The course begins in beautiful Brand
Park, climbs steadily to one of the highest points in the Verdugo
Mountains, and then heads back downhill for a fast descent to the finish.
Breathtaking views of the L.A. Basin, the San Fernando Valley, and the
Pacific Ocean await you at every turn. From the race’s highest point, at
2,670 feet above sea level, the panoramic view of the San Gabriel
Mountains is truly spectacular.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE VERDUGO MOUNTAINS 10K:
race was excellent! There was a buzz around the finish line that I have
not seen in quite a while. A lot of long time local runners were making
immediate comparisons to the Mt Wilson Trail Race and Baldy Run to the
Top, which are very long time and established cult races, as you surely
know... so I am thinking that you have created an instant classic with a
modern feel to it! “
