Every summer local High Schools and Colleges put up on these fundraising races that help students prepare for their up coming XC season. We are not racing these as a team; however, it would be a good idea to jump into these races to fine tune your racing for our upcoming USATF XC season. Below is a list of local popular races and a little blurb about them.
Thousand Oaks - La Reina HS >>>
For those that live in the west side ( Lubos, Paul, Julie, Maggie) There's this fun XC race La Reina HS puts on every Tuesday. It's a smaller crowd but you get some competition from the high school kids and Collegiate sometimes, just depends who shows up. Also its super family friendly, it caters to introducing elementary kids to XC racing. Entry fee is only $6 and race starts at 6:30pm
Palmdale - Pelona Park - High Desert Running Club 2017 Results >>>
If you are up for a drive and a challenging course, then this is your adventure race. It's at 1K ft elevation (trust us, you will feel your lungs burn), it's desert hotness, it's dusty, its sandy, it's a hilly course and you got some strong competition from local HS runners. The race is put on by the High Desert Running Club. Our friend/race director Alan Brown is always happy to see NBB make the drive and participate in his challenging course. Entry is FREE but they have donation boxes and no change so if you bring a $20 bill that's what it will cost you so get change a head of time or not if you feel charitable. Races start at 6:45pm
