on Saturday, May 18, 2019. The event field is limited, so enter early!

This is the Grand Mama event:

– 11k This is a challenging and beautiful course that ends with a single track trail. We recently removed a small loop of the course running up to the water tower (one less hill)!

– 22k goes up Bulldog (oh so fun), but what follows is some of the most amazing scenery in Malibu.  Please note that the course closes at 11:30 a.m., so you must finish before then!

– 6k is a great introductory trail run with single track and fire road trails.

Directions and Parking


The race takes place at Malibu Creek State Park, just south of Mulholland on Las Virgenes Road. Parking costs $12.00 at the park – correct change is appreciated. There is FREE limited parking just north of the park entrance for the earlier arrivers! But heck, park in the park – the park needs the money!

From 101 Fwy: take Las Virgenes Road south and turn right at Malibu Creek State Park, about 0.2 miles south of Mulholland Hwy.

From PCH: take Malibu Canyon Road north for six miles and turn left into Malibu Creek State Park.

Remember, parking will take time, so please be patient and plan ahead. We are opening the parking lot at 5:30am to accommodate participantsParking is now $12 – please have correct change. Also, please be alert on race morning, we have been requested by the parks to get cars into the lots (and off Las Virgenes) as quickly as possible, so please pay attention and follow the volunteers’ directions.

Do not park off of the pavement or you will get an expensive ticket. And park as close as possible to the adjacent car!

The Malibu Creek lots will accommodate 500+ cars, which means that anyone that arrives after 6:30am will need to park at either the free lots around Mulholland/Las Virgenes intersection or the paid lot at Tapia Park. Tapia Park is 1.5 miles south of Malibu Creek State Park on Las Virgenes Road. We encourage the 6k mile runners to park in these outer lots to allow the 22k runners to arrive early, since their race departs at 7:30am.
