      John Wayne Grit Series – Newport Coast 25k & 5k

      Bring your John Wayne grit to the trails and #RunToFightCancer.

      It’s California the way it used to be. So partner, bring all the grit you can muster to tackle the rugged coastal trails in John Wayne’s backyard.

      Join us as an individual or a team to get dusty on the dirt roads and single track trails in Crystal Cove State Park located on the coast between Newport Beach and Laguna Beach. You’ll test your endurance on the challenging climb out of El Moro Canyon and be rewarded with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island. After you’ve finished the course, join us for a celebration at the John Wayne Grit Down!

      In the words of John Wayne, “There are some things a man just can't run away from.” When you join us on the trails, you’ll be fighting cancer head on with every step you take.
