Sherri Ellerby & Fred Cowles
Location: Meet at Cedar Grove Park in Tustin. Public restrooms and drinking fountain available at the start. Additional parking within walking distance at Pioneer Middle School.
Directions: From 5 freeway, exit Jamboree and go north 2 miles to Portola Pkwy. Left on Portola, right on Tustin Ranch Road, left on Pioneer Way, right on Pioneer Rd. where you will immediately see the park on the left. Turn left into the driveway.
About the Run: We'll run out along Peters Canyon Trail taking us into Peters Canyon Regional Park. We’ll stay on this trail until we get to the corner of Jamboree and Canyon View (roughly 2.7 miles), crossing at the light signal. Then we run along the bike path that parallels Jamboree leads into the entrance of Irvine Reg’l Park, which veers off to the right at the end of Jamboree. From there you can do a loop of Irvine Regional Park (approx 3.3 Miles) on paved roads. If you are interested in some dirt trail/hilly options, please let Sherri or Fred know in advance, and we can make sure you get a nice race experience.
Ways to add more distance:
*Go around the reservoir on your way back through Peters Canyon
*Do a long, narrow loop of Santiago Oaks before or after your loop of Irvine Regional Park (roughly 2.5 miles)
*Upon returning to the start in Cedar Grove, continue out and back towards the Hicks Canyon Trail as far as you need, which many club members know how to get to via Jamboree Rd.
After the Run: John’s Place at the corner of Jamobree and Chapman in the Albertson’s shopping center.
