Run The Peak
If you love the mountains, the challenge of a good, long climb and quad-pounding descents, then The Peak is for you. Running mostly along single track trails and fire roads with spectacular views, The Peak climbs Cuyamaca Peak—San Diego County’s second highest.
The marathon route takes you up on a 2,200 foot climb over the initial 6.5 miles of the course, then drops you down 2,800 feet to the turnaround. The return trip takes you back up to the top of Cuyamaca Peak for a total elevation gain and loss of 10,000 feet.
The half marathon follows in the footsteps of the marathon, climbing up the challenging Conejos Trail before reaching the peak and a return trip back to the start/finish area.
There is an 8.5 hour cut-off for the marathon (4 hours to the turnaround) and a 4.5 hour cut-off for the half.
