Runners Join the 3rd Annual SPACEROCK Trail Race

| Canyon Country Magazine | October 6, 2018

Sometimes referred to as the final trail-running frontier, the annual SPACEROCK Trail Race returns this month to Vasquez Rocks in Agua Dulce. Hosted by New Global Adventures, it’s a half marathon, 10K or 5K race available to the public on October 13, 2018.

With the iconic Vasquez Rocks as a backdrop, participants will run across the former filming location of famous TV shows and movies, including “Star Trek,” “The Flintstones,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Planet of the Apes,” and many classic westerns. The “out of this world” SPACEROCK Trail Race enables you to “explore strange, new trails, to seek out new life and new experiences, to boldly run where no one has run before.”

With three choices, runners of many levels of ability are welcome to join others in passing through rock formations and for longer distances into the canyons and the iconic tunnel going under the 14 freeway.

The starting point is located at Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park located at 10700 Escondido Canyon Road in Agua Dulce, beginning at sunrise, 6:00 a.m. Parking will be off-site and participants will be shuttled to the race staging area. Check the website for complete event details. You can read more about the race at SPACEROCKTrailRace.com, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Creators of the event also host the VALENCIA Trail Race (valenciatrailrace.com) in the hills of Valencia, Calif. and the Sugar Daddy Half Marathon (sugardaddymarathon.com) held on Father’s Day weekend in Santa Clarita.
“Our organization believes it is important to give back to the world,” says founder Terry Majamaki. “While our event’s focus is about giving runners an amazing race experience, we also want to give back to our local community and, when possible, to those in need around the world. By running in these races you will be supporting the local Wildlife Waystation, Global Adventure Kids and ChowChow.org.”
