Mariners Park (intersection of Mariner's Drive & Dover Dr.) Newport BeachMap
Leader: Kirsten Hirneisen
Directions: From the Irvine Area, 405 North (or 5 North) to 55 South, which becomes Newport Blvd. Turn left on 19th St. In 1 mile 19th St. becomes Dover Dr. Proceed about ¼ mile to Mariners Drive, where the park is located. At the park, there are bathrooms, parking lot and street parking options, a park for the children (and those with child-like spirits).
About the Run: This run is a variation of an SCRR favorite. We will run the Run the BackBay Loop going counter-clockwise. From Mariner’s Park- to get to Galaxy Drive, take Mariner’s Road towards the bay. When returning, you’ll turn Right onto Mariners and run up to the park! Depending on your knowledge of the area (aka, which corners you want to cut), this can be a 9 to 11.5 mile run. Also, you can extend the run with an out and back on the San Diego Creek trail, or you can continue down Jamboree and do a loop of the Balboa Islands.
