Event Description

​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 trail with spectacular views, The Peak climbs Cuyamaca Peak—San Diego County’s second highest. 

The 50K and marathon routes take you up on a 2,200 foot climb over the initial 6.5 miles of the course, then drops you down 2,800 feet.  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 50K and marathon, climbing up the challenging Conejos Trail before reaching the peak and a return trip back to the start/finish area.

There is a 10 hour cut-off for the 50K, 8.5 hours for the marathon (4 hours to the turnaround) and a 4.5 hour cut-off for the half.
Tech t-shirts to all entrants. Finisher medals. Food and refreshments at the finish!
