Thanks so much for joining us at this year’s toasty Toro Loco Trail Run! Results are now available on the results tab.
Keep an eye out for next year’s event, tentatively scheduled for August 27, 2016.


Toro LocoToro County Park is located six miles from downtown Salinas, and 13 miles from the Monterey Peninsula. First open to the public in 1971, the park’s 4,756 acres have been a haven for thousands of visitors, as it is provides sharp climbs unlike most of the accessible Northern California hiking terrain. It is also home to many types of wildlife including deer, coyote, and a rare mountain lion or golden eagle. Toro’s pastoral setting makes it the ideal place for a trail run. This is a unique race and is one of our favorite courses because of the amazing trails and splendid views.
