HUGE THANK YOU to the New Basin Blues members who donated their time and money towards this year’s XC Shoe Program.

This morning we hosted Reseda and Monroe High School XC teams at Balboa Park. We were joined by our friends Team Romero (Ruperto Romero/Robert Leonardo/Hugo Tapia) and Jose Merino, who shared their experiences with the kids. We took the kids for a run around the Sepulveda Basin, our namesake, before serving breakfast and giving them new shoes for the upcoming season.

Special thanks to Fleet Feet Encino for fitting the XC teams and providing the shoes, Smartwool for their donation to the program and Trail Run Events for making this event a success. We look forward to next year’s event, our 19th annual.
