California > XTERRA Point Mugu Xduro Trail Run
Oxnard, CA



Sunday, September 27, 2009

Event Details

The first in a series of Southern California-based trail races known as the XTERRA SoCal Trail Run Series, which takes place over the second half of 2008 and the first half of 2009, the XTERRA Point Mugu Xduro Trail Run is a race that offers two challenging distances for trail runners -- the 11K and the half-marathon distance 18K, both of which will test even experienced trail runners along a course that winds through the mountainous terrain of Point Mugu State Park, located in the Santa Monica Mountains just outside the cities of Oxnard and Thousand Oaks.

Featuring an out-and-back loop course that starts and finishes at the park's La Jolla Canyon beach near the Pacific Coast Highway, the race will lead runners over a grueling course filled with rocky bluffs, rugged hills, two major river canyons, and wide grass valleys. Point Mugu State Park holds over 70 miles of running trails with five miles of breathtaking ocean shoreline that will hopefully make athletes forget about the painstaking challenge before them.

This is the first of seven races in the 2008-2009 XTERRA SoCal Trail Run Series and is the first opportunity for runners to earn points toward their series total. Top finishers in the series will earn free entry to the XTERRA National Trail Running Championship Xduro in Bend, Oregon.

Race Weather & Climate

Nestled along the coast of Southern California, about 62 miles -- or roughly an hour's drive -- west of Los Angeles, the city of Oxnard tends to see mild to moderately warm weather virtually year-round, with rainfall usually only in the late fall, winter and early spring. In September, average monthly temperatures range between 74°F and 59°F, while rainfall totals average just over a third of an inch for the month.
