Due to the no bike policy on Crest Canyon and Torrey Pines State Park. I changed the route for ride from AS2 to AS3 and make it a 50K ride. Please see the Course Map and Files section for the updates.
All the course maps and files are updated now. There are quite a few changes/adjustments, so please download/update the one(s) of your choice.
Here are the 3 proposed training runs. All of them are the full course runs so no need for carpooling. If you want to run just some segments of the course, you'll need to figure out your own transportation/ride.
2/28, Sunday 6AM
3/21, Sunday 6:30AM
4/11, Sunday 6:00AM
Formerly named PQ & GZ Trail Marathon. I changed the race name in memory of my beloved friend Dingneng Wang, who inspired us so much and loved running this course. May he rest in peace!
Dingneng had many hiking friends and he created a biking group. So I added two distances for his hiking and riding friends. We are getting together to remember him in our own ways!
We miss you, Dingneng!
This year will be running counter-clockwise and cutoff time is 6hrs for marathon.
For Half Hike, we will carpool from finish line at 6:30AM to AS2, which is the start line of Half Hike. The course of Half Hike is the 2nd half of marathon course.
