THE VENUE: Verdugo Park is one of the crown jewels in the City of Glendale park system. Though it is in the middle of a residential neighborhood it features ample grass, mature shade trees, a sparkling creek, great picnic areas, and a skate park!
THE COURSE: Race takes place in a beautiful urban park shaded by trees. Start/finish will be on east lawn. Course is a mix of pavement, dirt and grass.
