Race #2 of the new SoCalTrail "Trail ½ Series" - 3 half-marathons in 3 months!

Join us at Point Mugu State Park for breathtaking and beautiful Half-Marathon and 10k trail races.

Starting at the Ray Miller Trail, the course ascends 3 miles of ocean-view switchbacks, cruises along the Overlook Fireroad and drops into Sycamore Canyon via the Backbone Trail. The next 2 miles are the speediest of the course, before the final, leg-burning Fireline Trail climb back up for the Ray Miller downhill finish. The 10k short course turns around at the top of Fireline. It's a fast, fun, and challenging trail race with amazing scenery and lots of fun to be had afterwards.

Take away a soft race shirt, unique finisher medals and amazing race photography that's included with your entry. The Point Mugu Trail Run experience includes a thirst-quenching beer garden (21+), delicious vegan-friendly taco breakfast, sports massage treatment by Vision for Enrichment and an awards ceremony for 21k and 10k age group runners.
