The San Diego 50 and Trail Marathon course will feature some of the beautiful trails of the San Dieguito River Park and the Black Mountain Open Space Park. The course will be a mix of double track, single track, fire road and a very small amount of paved running.

Starting at the San Pasqual Valley Trailhead, 50 Mile and Marathon runners will head WEST on the San Pasqual Valley Trail. This will take runners up and over Raptor Ridge and on to the Mule Hill Trail. Once reaching the Mule Hill Trail Head runners will be diverted along the edge of the parking lot to the trailhead of the North Shore Lake Hodges Trail. This trail will pass under Hwy 15 on a paved walkway, however there is dirt along the walkway if you would prefer to not run on the paved path. Once off the paved path the trail will become very scenic as you run a combination of double track, fire road, and single track all overlooking Lake Hodges.
