The City of Monrovia Fountain to the Falls 7mile Run/Walk is set for May 19, 2012. This is a seven mile run/walk event on a round-trip course beginning in Monrovia’s Old Town at the fountain in Library Park up to the waterfall in Canyon Park and back down. This is the second annual Fountain to the Falls race and is held in conjunction with Monrovia Day.
The race course is moderately challenging and features over 1,000ft elevation climb on the way up to the waterfall. The race course starts at the Library and heads north on Myrtle Avenue to Hillcrest, east to Canyon Boulevard, north to the entrance of Canyon Park and from there, racers will access the trail that leads to the falls. Racers should be aware that once inside Canyon Park they will be running on dirt trails up to the falls.
