Westridge: Irving’s run
This is Labor Day weekend, a big travelers weekend. I will be traveling myself so this run will NOT be marked.
This route was suggested by one of our alumni senior runners, and it is still a favorite. This 10 mile lollipop loop starts at the Westridge trailhead and after about 3 miles uphill running, we take the right turn towards the Hollyhock that we’ll climb up onto Mandeville Canyon. From there we make our way to dirt Mulholland and to the Nike station. This is where we top out in elevation and where we are rewarded with amazing views, bathrooms and a water fountain. After the little refreshing break it’s time to fly the remaining 3.5 miles back down to the car.
Members should have an email in their mailbox weekly by the end of Friday night with details for the following Sunday run that will include a link to the course mapped out on Strava and a link to an online sign-up sheet with the individual start times where we ask participating runners to add their name so we know who to expect. We now strongly encourage everyone to start at 7 am as one big group! Yeah!!!
Looking forward to seeing more and more runners having fun together on trail,
