San Diego's most beautiful 50 mile running event

Join us as we run 50 miles via the single-track Pacific Crest Trail in the Cleveland National Forest. The run starts at an elevation of 3,000 feet and climbs to 6,000 feet, with changing eco-cultures and beautiful vistas. As always, traditional Cuban feast at the finish! Tech tees and finishers' medals.
