New Global Adventures has announced the 2nd annual SPACEROCK Trail Race, a trail race through the iconic Vasquez Rocks Natural Park featuring a Half Marathon, 10K, or 5K trail race on Oct. 15th.

Experience the exotic trails and sights of the world famous Vasquez Rocks, best known as the backdrop from popular TV shows and films including Star Trek, The Flintstones, Battlestar Galactica, Planet of the Apes, and many of our favorite classic westerns. Now you can get a spectacular experience running the trails at the SPACEROCK Trail Race.

“The Inaugural SPACEROCK Trail Race was literally an out of this world event. A very scenic, challenging and fun race that will become an annual event for my friends and I… you definitely took trail racing to a whole new level.” says 2016 runner Eric Sorenson.

SPACEROCK: the final trail running frontier. These are the voyages of trail runners around the world. Your mission: to explore strange new trails, to seek out new life and new experiences, to boldly run where no one has run before.

Registration is open with distances for all types of runners to offer a variety of challenges that best meets their level of fitness. Experience a trail course that takes you through and around the massive rock formations and for longer distances into the canyons and the iconic black hole tunnel going under the 14 freeway. Registration is available on SPACEROCKTrailRace.com or on the popular Active.com running network.

Race day is Sunday Oct. 15th. The start is located at Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park in Agua Dulce, starting at 6:00 a.m. sunrise. Parking will be off-site with buses shuttling participants to the race staging area. Check the website for complete event details.

The SPACEROCK Trail Race is currently seeking media press, sponsorship and partner support. For businesses that want their brand or products represented with this spectacular event, send inquiries to run@spacerocktrailrace.com.
