Palos Verdes Peninsula

The Palos Verdes Peninsula offers significant opportunities for running. There are some runnable roads affording incredible ocean views. There is also a huge network of trails, some suitable for running, others more rugged.
It is difficult to describe a particular run here because the geography is so large. The Village Runner in Redondo Beach has created a series of routes in Palos Verdes. Their sponsored club called Club Ed Running leads a Saturday group run, and Village Runner has a casual Sunday morning group run. Some recommended spots for running in PV:
  • Paseo del Mar. The road closest to the beach, goes for ~4 miles
  • Palos Verdes Dr. North: the best for running, with bike/bridle path
  • PV North to PV East to PV South – stopping at Trump National course is 7 miles one-way
  • Abalone Cove. A hidden gem
  • 21-mile ‘Run the Peninsula’. The folks at Village Runner have mapped this one out.
