Dog Daze Doubles

Chula Vista, CA 1/2 Marathon, Marathon, 50K, 10K

This Event Took Place Sat. Aug 3, 2013


This is your chance to get in that last long run before the BIG race, The AFC Half Marathon, for example.  The course is remarkably flat, 5K loop, on forgiving dirt trails around a park and golf course.   There is oneOPTIONAL hill you can run per lap, it’s about 30 feet high,  it's optional  for all but lunatics and it only adds to the EXTRA MILE :D   Gaiters or trail shoes recommended but not required.

This course is easy on your feet, has some shaded areas, separated from street traffic, and parking is free at the start/ finish.  There are several brick and mortar restrooms, drinking fountains, Starbucks, Mc Donalds, Jack in the Box, AM/ PM and free WiFi at the start/ finish line.  There is also an Ice Cream Parlor, Rite Aid, Vons, as well as Oyster bar, Taco Shop, and some other eating and drinking establishments for post-race refreshments right across the street.

You will run clockwise loops around the trail.  The run starts and finishes behnd the Bonita-Sunnyside Library.  The course is NOT a certified distance, we don't use chip timing.  We are old school runners, you can expect our course to always be a little bit longer than standard distance.  Our 5K is actually Pi miles. Our 10K is actually 2 Pi miles.  If you don't remember your geometry, thats 3.14 miles in Pi miles, approximately.  Why?  Because we are lunatics and just a little bit crazy.
