Our favorite Tristar run from SMOG! This long run starts from the beach and works up the dirt trails of Palos Verdes Estates, crests above Bluff coved before heading down to a flat run to Nelsons. The early part of the run may include some walking of steeper dirt path sections. The goal is to run to Nelson’s for lunch and Uber back. Total run is ~8-9miles.
This run has three distance options for you to chose from. Go 5K, 10K and 13.1 miles to prep for your upcoming sprint to 70.3 distance race. The course starts from avenue “A” on the boardwalk and runs South to the telephone poll trail. Slightly uphill hill until you hit Via Las Vegas Rd and loop back down PV drive North to the start of the trail. Do two of these loops and back to “ave a” and you are 13.1miles done! ….do only 1 loop and back = 6miles. Go to the start of the looping trail head and back to “ave a” and you are 5K done!.
This ~8mi loop run is mostly on dirt trails rolling upwards towards the top of Valmonte before turning left onto the horse trails. From the horse trails and between neighborhoods you will wind your way back to the look out point at Butcher hill before running back down the telephone pole trail to the beach. This route is perfect for those looking to run on softer surfaces for the sake of injury prevention.
