Reach the Peak!
Double Peak Challenge is a celebration of outdoor recreation like no other, where trail runners will experience unparalleled beauty from atop North County’s highest point.
Off-road racers will set out from San Elijo Hills Neighborhood Park and begin their 1,176 foot gain up to Double Peak’s summit at 1,558 feet above sea level, winding along beautiful hillside trails with amazing views.
Not up for the full 10K? No worries! Double Peaks Challenge also offers a shorter 5K course, as well as a Trail Trot for kids.
*Please note: Jogging strollers are not advised on the 10K or 5K due to very steep inclines and uneven surface at times.
The San Marcos Promise provides students in the San Marcos Unified School District with a path to prosperity by providing scholarships and career guidance to inspire academic achievement and post-secondary educational opportunities.
This is a challenging, hilly course, so be prepared for an exhilarating run!
Fun Race Features!
10K Challenge timed race, 5K untimed run/walk, kids Trail Trot
