You would THNK that the city news service might check on how to spell Chesebro. A 10 second google search would have done it. Amateur hour.

I'm pretty sure it's Chesebro. I am doing the Chesebro 1/2 on March 22 and that's how they spell it, BUT you are right Penny, it's spelled Cheesebro and Cheeseboro everywhere!

aw! I hope he mends fast! And Coco, from the Half Marathon page; Chesebro Half Marathon HOT! This race always sells out. Sign up early to reserve your space! This is a unique run that traverses both road and trails. It wanders through Old Agoura down Chesebro Road and onto the Cheeseboro Canyon Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. (Yes, the road is Chesebro and the trail is Cheeseboro). This race is capped and will sell out. ---------------------------- Good luck on the race!
