Race #7 takes place at the breathtaking Malibu Creek State Park, located in Malibu/Calabasas, CA. The event field is limited, so enter early! This is the Grand Mama event - the 22k goes up Bulldog (oh so fun), but what follows is some of the most amazing scenery in Malibu. The 6k is a great introductory trail run with single track and fireroad trails.

All participants get a great (seriously, it's not a plain white one) race t-shirt, cool finisher medal, hot breakfast with all the fixin's, coffee, entry into the raffle of swag, and the satisfaction of completing one of the best races around!

Race day registration and bib number pick up begins at 6:30am.
Please note that the course closes at 11:30am, so you must finish before then!

There are plenty of local accommodations in Calabasas, just 5 miles from the race site. Just google Calabasas, Thousand Oaks or Agoura Hills. There are a couple mid range hotels down by the beach in Malibu as well!

The race takes place at Malibu Creek State Park, just south of Mulholland on Las Virgenes Road. Parking costs $12.00 at the park - correct change is appreciated. There is FREE limited parking just north of the park entrance for the earlier arrivers! But heck, park in the park - the park needs the money!

From 101 Fwy: take Las Virgenes Road south and turn right at Malibu Creek State Park, about 0.2 miles south of Mulholland Hwy.

From PCH: take Malibu Canyon Road north for six miles and turn left into Malibu Creek State Park.
