The 2015 SD 100 is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, June 6, 2015 starting at 6:00 am PDT from Lake Cuyamaca Recreation Area near Julian, CA. Qualification for the 2015 event
requires applicants to have completed an official 50 mile run in under 13 hours within the qualification period of January 1, 2013 to January 1, 2015. Completion of any official 100 mile or 100K during this two year time period will also serve as a qualifier. Registration for the 2105 race will open on January 1, 2015 and applications will be accepted for two days. Following the 2-day registration period a lottery will be held to select the 250 entrant field. A wait list will also be selected to allow for backfills from those who withdraw from the race prior to May 1. .
Changes for 2015 Event:
Several important changes are implemented for the 14th Annual SD 100 in order to maintain a field of 250 runners and acquire applicable permits. All runners need to understand and accept the rule changes prior to registering for the lottery. These changes are necessitated due to the number of support, crew, and pacer vehicles that cannot safely be accommodated with a 250 entrant field. All rule changes will be updated on the event web site but key changes include:
1. Pacers are only allowed to accompany the last 28 miles of the course with their runner; from Pioneer Mail 2 to the finish.
2. Each runner will only be allowed one crew vehicle. This restriction will be strictly enforced. Crews will be able to park additional cars and carpool (in one vehicle) from Sunrise 1. Any runner who has more than one vehicle meet them at any aid stations (other than Sunrise 1) faces disqualification.
3. The race will encourage and recognize (with special awards) runners who compete in the Solo Division which means the runner is self sufficient with no Pacer or Crew to assist. Solo Runners will have special bibs and rely on drop bags for their special needs.
The San Diego 100 course is a 90% single track mountain course which covers four recreational areas in the east county mountains of San Diego. The 2014 start and finish area have been relocated from the Al Bahr Shrine Camp to Lake Cuyamaca due to last July's Chariot Fire. The 2015 course includes trails traversing sections of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), Noble Canyon, Cuyamaca State Park and Mt Laguna Recreational Areas. A very challenging course with approximately 26,000' feet of total elevation change (13k climb & 13k descent) with a 32 hour time limit. Selected runners must agree to the strictly enforced limit of one crew vehicle which includes any pacers that are helping the runner.
The 2014 race start and finish area has moved to Lake Cuyamaca which is located 9 miles southwest of Julian, CA on state Hwy 79. See race web site for lodging details.
