ABOUT

Double Peak Challenge is a celebration of outdoor recreation like no other.  Where trail runners will experience unparalleled beauty from atop North County’s highest point.

Off-road racers will set out from San Elijo Hills Neighborhood Park and begin their 1,176 foot gain up to Double Peak’s summit at 1,558 feet above sea level, winding along beautiful hillside trails with amazing views.

Not up for the full 10K? No worries! Double Peak Challenge also offers an awesome 5K course as well as a 200 Meter “Trail” Trot for kids.

Race proceeds will benefit the San Marcos community through two important non-profit organizations: Friends of San Marcos Parks & Recreation and The San Marcos Promise.

 The Friends of San Marcos Park & Recreation invests in events, programs, parks and facilities to enhance the quality of life in the City of San Marcos.

The San Marcos Promise provides students in the San Marcos Unified School District with a path to prosperity by providing scholarships and career guidance to inspire academic achievement and post-secondary educational opportunities.

We challenge you to  commit, to train, work hard and go further and faster than you thought possible.  Reach the Peak in 2018 – the Friends of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Board
