The Temecula 5K course travels through scenic back country roads, while the Half Marathon out-and-back takes runners past vineyards and farmland. Both hilly, the 5K is an easier course, while the Half Marathon offers a hilly challenge. Remember, dirt roads are better on your joints. Temperatures are expected to be chilly at the start for this fall race, heating up to the 80s by midday. Bring cash if you want to drink a little extra. A portion of proceeds goes to the Rose Again Foundation.
The Rose Again Foundation seeks to provide a safe, loving and nurturing home-life experience and exceptional liberal arts education to orphaned and foster children. The money raised will be used to improve the lives of foster and orphaned children, the families who foster/adopt them and to aged-out foster young adults.

Sandy Feet Events strives to provide eco-friendly events to the San Diego community. Below is just a glimpse into our efforts:
- Reduce paper waste by requiring at least 80% of total pre-registered race field to register online
- No mailing of paper registration forms
- Provide recycling bins at the event and recycle cardboard, paper, plastic and other materials
- Provide information to athletes about public transportation options and/or provide them with ride-share options on your website
- Offer a clothing and/or shoe recycling/reuse program (old running shoes and apparel can be recycled and/or contributed to charity organizations)
