With all of the great weather lately it’s only fitting that one of the more scenic runs in the Orangeman Running series, the Caspers Wilderness Park Trail Run, is set to take place in a few days’ time on March 17.
The 5K and 10K run takes place on easy-to-moderate trails that snake through portions of the park’s 8,000 protected acres. The course may wind through the wilderness but the trails runners will be on are well groomed. Aside from the 5K and 10K runs there will also be a kids 1K fun run.
Registration is now open and online registration closes on March 15.
The race start point is located at 33401 Ortega Highway, San Juan Capistrano. After entering the park, proceed straight and look for the signs that direct you towards the “Old Corral Picnic Area”, which is just over one mile from the park’s entrance. Parking cost is $3.
Cost for the 5K is $40, the 10K is $60 and the Kids 1K is $15. Those wishing to take part in the race are encouraged to pick up their race packet the day of the event between 7 to 8 a.m. at the starting point.
