With the XTERRA SoCal Trail Run series having only two races left, Black Mountain is going to be an exciting race this weekend.
“It’s our most urban XTERRA in the SoCal series with a wide range of terrain, from grassy inclines to cinder trails, and even some creek crossings,” said Black Mountain’s Race Director, Daniel Weissauer. “It looks like it’s going to be good racing weather with a high in the 70’s and partly cloudy.”
Darren Brown has dominated the past three races in the SoCal series and is planning on continuing his reign while in San Diego. According to the Weissauer he’s been destroying course records and said not to be surprised if you see Brown in the front again.
For the females, there are three women battling it out for the age group points for the 35-39 division. Mary Colburn is leading and has won every race she has participated in but only has a slim six point lead over Tina Weissauer. Maggie Shearer from Newbury Park is currently in third and is a strong competitor that still has an opportunity to win the division. We will need to stay tuned through May to determine who becomes a division winner and receives a free invitation to the Paul Mitchell XTERRA Trail Run National Championship in Snowbasin, Ogden, Utah, in September.
