USD Cross Country and Track programs Promote Save The Trails Campaign

April 22, 2010

San Diego, CA - This week the Torero Cross Country and Track programs continue to promote their very own Save the Trails Campaign on conjunction with Earth Week.

"This is an awareness appeal to runners, hikers, and mountain bikers to conserve and promote the usage of many of San Diego County's canyons and trails," said Head Coach Will Guarino. "San Diego is well known to have some of the most preserved canyon trails in the largely populated Southern California area."

San Diego's natural landscape is vital in promoting and sustaining one of the strongest hubs for biodiversity in the country. They are surrounded by lagoons, mesas, mountains and deserts. The canyons and trails allow for this natural habitat to thrive and we as runners happen to have the best angle to see this daily during our outdoor training sessions.

The canyons and trails provide us with a connection to the natural world. These trails and canyons have survived due to cost hurdles when developing different parts of San Diego. It was simply too expensive to build on these lovely parcels of land. The beneficiaries are the Diegos (San Diegans) and their visitors that now have a connection to so much natural habitat. There are numerous canyons, and the team and coaching staff wanted to highlight some of the ones that are prevalent in the greater footprint of the San Diego area. Some are named after the landscape, while others retain their original Spanish names.

USD Cross Country & Track also wants to thank USD's XC runner Adam Conover for his design of the Save The Trails logo.

"Enjoy your Earth week and make a difference," said Guarino. "Take those vital first steps that will help promote a healthier global lifestyle. Use reusable water bottles and kick the water bottle habit. Commute with your friends to events, walk, take public transportation, ride your bike, or ride a scooter around San Diego. You can help the earth 52 weeks out of the year!"
