Hi Everyone! We will be hosting a group trail run this Wednesday at 6:00pm. The group will meet at Coastal Peak Park in Newport Coast for a 4 mile run. Myself along Molly Kassouf (Race Director for Whoo's in El Moro Trail Race) and some of the 2XU Newport Beach will be running and would love to have you come enjoy the trails with us. We will be meeting in the restroom parking lot and starting from the Ridgepark Trail Head. We will have more than enough daylight but bring a headlamp if have one. We can provide a few more if need be. Hope to see you all on Wednesday!
Start and Finish at Fashion Island 2XU Store (Across from the Apple Store) (2XU is pronounced: two, times, you) 2XU store at Fashion Island has been gracious to sponsor our Thursday nights weekly run. Please join us for a social run. All of our runners will be able to get 25% off on all 2XU merchandise at the store. Just mention that you're from OC Runner's Club.

We're getting back to our regular time. Let's meet up at 8:50 AM to stretch by the entrance to the Muth Interpretive Center park, across from YMCA and leave at 9:00 AM sharp. We typically have 2 groups running: 1. An Intermediate group that does 4-7 miles at a 9-10 min/mile pace 2. An Intermediate/Fast group that does 7-10 miles at a 8-9 min/mile pace Come join us.
***Arrive at 6:00, pack off at 6:10*** Here's a great workout for legs and glutes with really great people as well! We run to the beach, do a steep ramp 1-?x, run back to the China Cove stairs and do those 1-?x (112 stairs), and then back up Goldenrod to the start. It takes about an hour, and you can go at any pace that you're comfortable going. The views are so wonderful, you may forget you're exercising! We have all speeds from 15 min/mile walkers to 5 min/mile super humans! We don't leave anyone behind. This is a great run if you're just starting and want a group to keep you motivated. We usually go to Whole Foods at Fashion Island afterwards for dinner and drinks. There's an outdoor fire-pit and heaters. CROSS-POSTED ON 5 meetups. We usually have 30-70 people each week. Distances: Peet's coffee to top of the ramp: 1.6 miles. Each ramp round trip: 0.25 miles. Top of ramp to top of stairs: 0.75 miles. Stairs round trip: 0.1 miles. Top or stairs back to Peet's: 1.0 miles. So: If you do 1 ramp and 1 stair set, that's 3.7 miles. Do 5 and 5, and that's 5.1 miles. Do 8 and 8, and that's a 10K (6.2 miles.)
