Hands down the best inaugural race I've attended. The attention to detail leading up to the race and continued assistance after has been phenomenal. Looking forward to next year!
I have done many triathlon and running races and this race BY FAR exceeded my expectations in terms of its organization, uniqueness and positive energy and dedication by all involved. It was clear how much thought and care went into organizing this race!!
Best race experience I've had so far. Would rate it 11 out of 10 stars 🙂
Killer hills is almost an understatement. Fabulous challenging course with amazing scenery every step of the way!
Amazing race and views! Crazy hills but would do it again in a heartbeat! Will be back next year.
The Valencia Trail Race was an amazing experience! The course was tough but beautiful. Everything was well-organized. The aid stations were great. And the goodies, including the medal, were awesome. This race is a definite repeat!
If you need a great challenge mixed with beautiful landscapes than this is your race!
This was the most challenging 10K I have done and it is a beautiful course. The support was amazing and the entire event was well-organized from beginning to end. I will be back next year with one or two friends so they can have an awesome experience.
The Valencia Trail Race was a very well put together event. Filled with energy from everyone involved. Overall an amazing event!
This trail race is a totally different kind of running experience- amazing views, challenging course and well organized.
Having witnessed multiple trail races my husband has done and this being my first, I was pleased overall with the professionalism of the Valencia Trail Race. There were a couple of unique traits that sets it apart from others, like the challenging hills, the amazing medal and the banner with the names of all the runners including the volunteers. My husband & daughter did the 50k, my nephew did the half marathon & I did the 10k. You can guarantee the Garcia Family will be signing up again for next year!
This was a muscle cramping, ankle breaking gem of a race. I'll be back.
You're tagline says it all! - Awesome Trails and Killer Hills. 🙂
It's a must run trail race!!
A great experience seeing the beautiful scenery of Santa Clarita!
HALF MARATHON RUNNERS
The Valencia Trail Race was by far the most challenging race of any half marathon or triathlon I've participated in! It pushed me beyond what I thought my physical limits were and the pride of crossing the finish line knowing I conquered the challenging course was incredibly rewarding!

What a beautiful, but extremely challenging course. I found the half marathon to be more challenging than a recent marathon I ran. Thanks for the great experience!
It may have been hard, but that's what I came for and that's what made the finish line even more special
Great race and well done. Excellent course, beautiful and well marked, super support and I can't wait to do it again.
The race was extremely well organized with more attention to detail than I've ever seen in any trail or road race. The course was a lot of fun and the volunteers were awesome! There were many more aid stations than I've experienced at other races. The race swag was THE BEST! I can't wait to do Spacerock later this year, and the Valencia Trail Race again next year!
The climbs are tough, the descents brutal and this is one of the best supported, most beautiful organized halfs I've ever done.
A must trail race to run! It's technical, a bad ass killer hills, challenging course and a superb scenery with friendly volunteers and delicious home cooked cookies and treats on each water stations.
Wow, awesome race and great course! I can't wait to become a Valencia Trail Race legacy runner!
This was a beautiful, challenging, and well supported event. I'll defintely be back next year and plan to sign up for their future events. The course was pretty, the aid stations and volunteers were incredible, the course was very well marked and the finisher swag was high quality. Well done for an inaugural race!
50K ULTRA RUNNERS
This gem of a race has a perfect blend of challenging hills and beautiful, flowing singletrack to test both strength and speed. It was extremely well organized and well thought out by people who obviously love and understand trail running.
Great experience on my first 50k. The organizers and volunteers were amazing.
the course was brutal, but that made me even more proud to have completed it. the volunteers were amazingly friendly and supportive. the goodies were high quality. i can't wait to run it next year!
I loved the fact there was all levels of people out there having a great time and cheering each other, the race was very magical
This was a great race and I absolutely plan on participating next year. I had such a great experience with the volunteers that I might participate that way. Thank you for putting on such a fun event here in the SCV.
We could not have asked for a better first Ultra experience. Tough course, gorgeous scenery, generous volunteers, cool race swag and an awesome finisher medal, mug and a 50k pin. This race couldn't have been any more perfect..... Well maybe except my finishing time. I will be back next year with a focused desire to beat my personal best.
What a great race experience! This was my first trail race and 50k, and it was a great experience, I'm hooked! The course was challenging, but beautiful. The aid stations were well stocked with food, supplies, and some of the most fantastic people in the whole world. I'm so happy I participated in this race and I can't wait to do it again!
What an amazing adventure. A beautiful course, with well placed Aid Stations and support. The local community came out in droves to run the Aid Stations. The race directors went above and beyond on this one.
A day of fun run with all the support to remind me of the event has been hosted by the people who care.
