ATTENTION: 1/2 Marathon registration opens Feb 1st, 2020
Come run with us through some of the most beautiful and challenging trails within the San Diego city limits. Our three race distances, 50K, 25K, and half marathon provide opportunity for any runner from first time trail runner to ultra-veteran. With about 5,000 feet of elevation gain in the 50K distance, 2500 ft in the 25K, and 2000 ft in the Half, a balance of technical single-track and jeep trail makes this race event challenging and fun!
Local time: 11:21 AM
Starting at Hilltop Park runners climb to the top of Little Black Loop trail and run through the beautiful single-track trails within the Black Mountain Open Space. Runners descend down Miners Loop trail, Ahwee trail, and Lilac trail until reaching Black Mountain Ranch Park (half marathon distance has turned off before the Park). From here, the 25K distance does a small loop before ascending to the summit of Black Mountain. The 50K distance completes the entire Lusardi Loop trail before beginning the climb to the Summit. After checking out the 360-degree views at the Summit, runners from all distances dart downhill to the finish, where food, drinks, and friends await you.
