California running

Southern California
  • San Diego:
  • San Diego evening skyline seen from Harbor Island pedestrian path
  • Orange County:
    • Head to Back Bay for a paved 10-mile loop (you can carve out a shorter distance by doing an out-and-back run).
    • Crystal Cove's Moro Canyon is a favorite of local trail enthusiasts for butt-kicking singletrack.
  • Los Angeles:
    • There are dozens, maybe hundreds, of running clubs in LA. To help you sort through the options, I'm going to recommend Yelp reviewsRacePlace magazine has the lowdown on upcoming events.

Northern California
  • San Francisco:
    • While I have run the waterfront along the wharf, I would not recommend this route unless you're lacing up early in the morning, or you enjoy dodging tourists. Instead, head over to Golden Gate Park for miles of looping trails.
