Trail Runners Club founded and operated the Topanga Turkey Trot and Malibu Creek Trail Challenge races for several years before turning them over to the capable hands of a company called Generic Events, also known as XTERRA. Generic prepared the following information regarding the potential park closures...
On January 10, 2008 Ruth Coleman, Director of California Department of Parks and Recreation, announced that Topanga State Park would be one of the 48 State Parks closed if Gov. Schwarzenegger’s proposal to cut $13.3 million from the state parks budget is approved.
Residents of Los Angeles County who are opposed to the closure of Topanga State Park and other local parks need to contact the Governor and their state legislators immediately and ask them to work to keep our parks open. Let them know you oppose closing any of our California State Parks. Please act immediately as the state budget is now under consideration.
