THE COURSE: A crusty 2.5km, spectator-friendly, all-dirt course that’s fast and furious, difficult and delirious, with downhill sections of varying speed and width, tight sandy turns, a unique “beach” section that runs along the shore of Lake Hodges, a sandpit and long, steady uphill sections with agonizingly placed barriers. This course will challenge every muscle in your body, every cubic inch of your lungs, and we’ll see just how good you are at handling your bike. Somewhere in the mix of it all you will realize just how much fun pain and suffering can be… it doesn’t hurt that there is a strategically placed beer garden where you can sit and imbibe glorious malt beverages while watching others suffer over much of the course or you can hike to the top of a nearby hill and see the entire course.
THE VENUE: Located right off Interstate 15 on the South Shore of Lake Hodges near Bernardo Bay Natural Area less than a mile from the world’s longest pedestrian suspension bridge and Rancho Bernardo Community Park. The course is also only two miles from dozens of restaurants at North County Fair Mall, so bring the entire family as there’s plenty to see and do after the race.
The San Dieguito River Park is an open space district that features hundreds of miles of multi-use trails and historical landmarks. The Coast to Crest Trail system will someday link more than 55 miles of trails from the Pacific Ocean in Del Mar to the Anza Borrego Desert.
