About Us

The Trail Runners Club, founded on 1988 by Stan Swartz -Director Emeritus- meets every Sunday morning to run one of many courses throughout the beautiful Santa Monica Mountains, sometimes also in the San Gabriel mountains and other areas. We run only on single track trails and fireroads.  If you live in or are visiting the Los Angeles area and enjoy running in natural settings with great people, you will love the Trail Runners Club. For more detailed information about our runs refer to the Run With Us page.

Baldy via Ski hut trail. Spring 2015

What a fun morning was had by Axel, Joe, Tin, Timmy, Brian, T.D., Skye and Ann. We all went up via the steep and technical Ski Hut trail. T.D. missed the start but found his way up via Baldy rd and we were united with him at the top of Mt. San Antonio, he got to do the Devils Backbone twice! Axel and Joe took off in the lead and were long gone home when we arrived back at the car. Great cool air at an altitude of 10,064ft, no chilling wind and some patches of snow. This little group of TRC dudes are a new experience richer today!

A wild 2015 wildflower season

This 2015 wild flower season has been beyond amazing so far. The Springs fire from May 2013 and the good amounts of rain we've had this winter have given the wildflowers the opportunity to flourish in the Western Santa Monica Mountains.

Today we had this run through Serrano Valley with fields full of purple lupines. Also patches of sunflower, poppies, paintbrush, indian warrior, etc...

Nordhoff ridge loop in Ojai

Dramatic cloud formations, hills in 50 shades of green, views to cry for, trails that make you feel a thousand dollars and after all that a wonderful lunch at this super quaint little Italian restaurant on the side of Hwy150. Nothing like some meatball sandwiches, lasagna, clamb showder and some fresh squized lemonade or orange juice to put runners in a good mood.
Ah, a good time was had by all ...

Spring Saturday special event runs announced.

For the Spring season we are adding two Saturday special runs, both runs are withing a reasonable driving distance and easily done in a day trip. The Sunday run the following day will stay on the schedule so you'll get a nice double run weekend if you'd like. These special Saturday runs are NOT marked and meant to be as a social run. Everyone gets a map and is encouraged to stay with at least one buddy.

New Years letter & info club membership 2015

Hello Trail runners;

a brand new 2015 is upon us, so it's time to write to you with some important news.

Overall, 2014 has been a great and cheerful year with lots of wonderful memories, but as all of you know, it ended with the sudden passing of our beloved friend and fierce club leader Ernie. We were in shock and disbelieve, how were we going to keep the club running without him?
Bob, Avalon, Art and me (Ann) created “team Ernie” and together we worked hard to keep the club runs organized, just like he did for so many years.
