RACE REPORT - Trail runners from all across Southern California successfully navigated the 2016 Pasadena Trail Running Challenge. Offering Distance Challenges ranging from 3MI - 9 MI, competitors enjoyed ample sunshine as they traversed local trails throughout Pasadena and the Angeles National Forest. Despite a few scrapes and cuts on the difficult terrain, all 2016 Pasadena Trail Challenge runners successfully completed the routes. True courage carried 9MI runners deep into remote parts of National Forest Trail system and determination brought them all back to the Finish Line. On behalf of Pasadena Running Company Staff & Volunteers, we thank everyone for participating and truly hope you enjoyed the adventure.
