Runs that Aren't Races in Beautiful Places


Start:    Montaña de Oro State Park, Los Osos, CA.  The park is six miles southwest of Morro Bay and seven miles south of Los Osos on Pecho Road.  Directions.

Course:   Montaña de Oro, "Mountain of Gold", features seven miles of shoreline, rugged cliffs, sandy beaches, coastal plains, streams, canyons, and hills, including 1,347-foot Valencia Peak.  The views are spectacular, the breezes always fresh, and you are never far from the sound and sight of the sea.  (Distances are accurately measured using a Rolatape® surveyor's measuring wheel.)

Awards:   T-shirts will be given to all finishers.  While awards are given to the first female and male finishers, PCTR events are designed to be non-competitive, encourage the enjoyment of trail running, and emphasize personal achievement.  In addition, we will give away Vasque trail shoes to individuals in recognition of their efforts, accomplishments, or sportsmanship - or for just having "serious fun".
