All WTRS events will be run within the Cleveland National Forest, Trabuco Forest Ranger District trails and fire roads. Each course will be different, depending on the length of the run. We will try to be as accurate as possible. We will mark the courses well and each event will start and finish at Lower Bluejay Campground.
