17th annual meditative and serene run and is a Boston Qualifier (among others). All races are run on the grounds of historic Camp Roberts Army National Guard Reservation, just north of San Miguel, California. Out-and-back course on paved road with dirt and packed gravel shoulders. Flat to gentle rolling hills, with breathtaking views of oak-studded hillsides, Salinas and Nacimiento Rivers and abundant Central Coast wildlife. Some compare course to a trail run. Start line is at 620' in front of gymnasium and rises to 997' at the marathon turn-around spot. You will truly enjoy this event!
Child care available. Museum and annex open during race and some militry vehicles for viewing (perhaps even a ride).
