Trail Runs

trail5Official Trail Runs kick off Saturday, November 4, 2017

Each year from November through April, AREC members head to the hills around Southern California to pursue a truly unique running experience.  Led by our Trail Master, we go to trailheads at State and Regional parks throughout Orange County and L.A.  for challenging and rewarding runs.  There are several routes offered each week that vary in level of difficulty and distance, so this program is appropriate for any runner from novice to expert.


trail2All runners will find the trails to be a very enjoyable experience if they are prepared for them.  Always bring plenty of water as it can get hot in the canyons and follow the maps!

Trail runners carpool from Joe’s Crab Shack on Marina Drive in Long Beach each Saturday morning.  The carpools leave at 7:00am.
