Saturday May 21st - 7:45amClub Run - Great Park & Portola Springs loopSquadron Lot 14280 Cadence Irvine, CA 92618Leader: Steve Ireland

Location: Park at the Squadron lot at the Great Park, address 14280 Cadence, Irvine, CA 92618. The best way to get there is to exit the 5 freeway at Sand Canyon and take Marine Way eastbound, turn left on Ridge Valley and right on Phantom road. Continue past the traffic circle/roundabout on Phantom and take the first right into the Squadron Lot; we will meet by the rows of palm trees that border the lot.

About the Run: This is a ~10.6 mile route which takes you through the Great Park area of Irvine and around the perimeter of some of the decommissioned El Toro Marine base. Most of the run will be on sidewalk/pavement and bringing water would be a good plan on a hot day. The run continues for the first 3 miles by the Great Park and keeps a gradual uphill pace through the neighborhood trails in Portola Springs past Irvine Blvd and once you reach Portola Parkway the rest of the route continues on a nice downhill slope.

Saturday May 7th - 7:45amClub Run - Mariner's Church/Farmer's MarketMariners ChurchLeader: Brion Talley

Directions: Exit 405 Freeway @ Culver. Go south on Culver which becomes Bonita Canyon Road once you cross Shady Canyon Rd. Go past Turtle Ridge drive and turn left into driveway on the North side of the campus. If you enter on the West side of campus from Newport Coast Dr, turn left from the driveway and park on either right or left side lots. There is ample parking in the complex. We will meet in front of the Chapel. Bathrooms are in a nearby Building 3.

About the Run: This is a modified Quail Hill Loop in reverse from the Mariner’s Church. The standard run is 10 miles but can be shortened or lengthened.

Detailed Description: Leaving the Mariner's Church parking lot, turn right onto Bonita Canyon Road. At the second light, turn Right onto Shady Canyon Road and continue the Quail Hill Route in reverse, with the exception of crossing the 405…DO NOT CROSS THE 405 unless you want to make the run longer. Instead, continue on the Shady Canyon bikeway trail on the west side of the freeway. This merges with University Trail (it’s all one continuous trail, two different names). As you pass the Tanaka Strawberry Farm you run into Ridgeline. Cross the street (obeying walk signals) and go left. Within 200 feet on your right hand side, the University trail continues through an urban park with lots of concrete and tall grass. The trail drops you off onto Culver (which turns into Bonita Canyon Road). This will be a gradual climb all the way to the Farmer’s Market. Turn left just past the signal at Anteater into the driveway for Mariner's Church. There are water and/or bathroom stops at Bommer Canyon parking lot, Quail Hill parking lot and where the University trail meets Culver (Water only).
