An important fundraiser is taking place this fall (Sunday, October 25) at the Elfin Forest Recreational Reserve. The “Keeping’ it Rural 5K/10K hike and trail run will take place in the upper part of the reserve (with the blessing of OMWD, TECC, EFHG Fire and RSF Fire). It is the first of many fundraising efforts we will be embarking on in order to put up a good fight against things that threaten the rural environment we cherish. I’ve included the details of the event below:
Here’s where we would love to have community support:
a) REGISTER FOR THE EVENT: we want as many residents of the Harmony Grove, Elfin Forest, Eden Valley and surrounding communities (and their families) to participate in either the 5K hike/run or the 10K run. It will be early in the morning so hopefully pretty cool and quite scenic. So click HERE to sign up for the event (or copy and paste this into your browser: https://www.runreg.com/the-elfin-forest-keeping-it-rural-5k10kletskeepitruralcom)
b) VOLUNTEER TO HELP: we ALSO need about 20-25 volunteers (water, registration, timing, direction, bag stuffing and other areas). Please let us know if you are willing and able to help. Anyone with EMT or CPR or first aid background would be appreciated as well.
c) SPONSORSHIP SOLICITATION: if you know of any companies that would like to be associated with the “Keepin’ it Rural” event, please reach out to them and see if you can get donations of cash, items, services. Sponsorships are crucial to making these events able to raise more funds than the entry fees.
Here are the pertinent details:
SCHEDULE: Registration starts: 6:45am | 10k Race Kickoff: 7:45am | 5K Race Kickoff: 8am
5K PRICING: $40 early bird (before 9/25) | $50 regular | $60 day of event. Includes finisher t-shirt and medal.

Dear San Elijo Hills Residents,
Please be advised that we will be repairing the turf in the Questhaven Park over the next two months. This is an extensive project that will be completed in two phases in order to allow you to continue to use portions of the park during the renovation. The renovations will not impact your use of the playground.
The project will begin on March 16th. A portion of the grass area will be closed so that we may remove the damaged areas and re-sod and re-seed the turf. We will be starting with the south side of the park. Once this area is completed, it will be reopened and we will close the north side of the park. Each section will be closed for up to six weeks. Please follow are signage and do not use the areas that are closed. If residents do not follow the signs and use areas before they are re-opened, we may need to extend the project.
While turf repair is a normal part of maintenance, the rate of deterioration of grass is accelerated when the park is used for commercial purposes or when residents heavily use the grass when it is wet. Please limit your use of the turf areas when the grass is wet, and please report commercial use to Walters Management. If you are able to provide us with the business contact information, we will be happy to follow-up with the commercial entity in order to protect our parks while suggesting alternatives within the city for their use. The goal is not to take away opportunities for residents to stay active within the community—we simply want to ensure our parks are readily available for use and enjoyed by all residents without excessive damage and unnecessary closures.
The Board of Directors feels strongly that we must continue to work together to ensure that San Elijo Hills is well maintained and continues to be a premier community in North County. Thank you for your cooperation and for doing your part to help maintain our community.
