The XTERRA Malibu Creek Challenge Trail Run
Race #8 of the series is a challenging 22k trail run up Bulldog trail with some of the most amazing scenery in Malibu. The 6k is a great introductory trail run with single track and fire road trails. This is the last race of the XTERRA Southern California Trail Run Series where runners earn points to qualify for the National XTERRA Trail Run Championship. XTERRA Malibu Creek takes place at the breathtaking Malibu Creek State Park, located in Malibu/Calabasas, CA. The Kids 1-mile Fun Run is a great excuse to bring the entire family, and it is a great introduction for kids that want to run in the woods, earn XTERRA Trail Runs finisher medals and t-shirts!
This is an officially USATF Sanctioned event.
Mountain Bike Poker Ride
Two courses to choose from: a challenging 14-mle loop up, down, and all around the park and a 6-mile, slightly technical course. Participants ride past the park's most important land marks, including the Planet of the Apes and MASH sites. The poker rides pass five checkpoints where riders build their poker hand. The best poker hands at the finish win prizes. For riders not ready to tackle the more technical sections of Malibu Creek State Park, the 3 mile Black Jack MTB Ride is a perfect alternative. Cruise along the creek and collect cards to play against each other at the finish.
