If you have any questions regarding the event or would like additional information, please feel free to contact your Community Director, Liz McCardle, at (760) 798-9015 or by email at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com.

No guests will be permitted. No pets are permitted.

Important! You must submit plans prior to making improvements

The Association has observed an increase in owners modifying their front yards without obtaining prior approval. With the current climate and drought conditions, we understand that owners are motivated to quickly throw in rock or decomposed granite along with small succulents. However, this is not always the best solution for the community as a whole. The Board of Directors has agreed to strictly enforce these infractions, and are in discussions on a fine policy to address these matters.

Please remember the following:
• Changes to homes and landscaping require architectural approval. Any change to your landscaping or home must be approved by the San Elijo Hills Architectural Committee (AC) prior to the commencement of work. The AC meets every month on the 2nd Wednesday. The Application and plans should be submitted well in advance of this meeting.
• Homeowners are responsible for maintaining their yards all year long. Please remember to keep yards trimmed, edged, and planter beds clean. Homeowners should pull weeds, trim bushes, mulch planters, remove and replace any dead vegetation, and generally clean landscaped areas regularly.
• Inspect fences, doors, shutters, etc. on an annual basis and paint as needed. A number of homes in San Elijo Hills are in need of some tender loving care. Garage doors, front doors, shutters, wood siding, and trim should be painted every few years or as needed. In addition, all wooden fences should be inspected annually and either stained or painted. If your home is over 10 years old, it may be time to consider repainting the home as a whole.

Trails Committee

Do you enjoy hiking, biking or strolling any of the 18 miles of trails in San Elijo Hills? Are you looking for a way to become more involved in the community? If you answered “yes” to both of these questions then you may be perfectly suited to serve on the Trails Committee! The Committee is dedicated to keeping our trails safe and beautiful. If you are interested, please contact Liz McCardle at sehdirector@waltersmanagement.com for more information.

Saturday, Sept. 29TH 2018 3rd Annual San Marcos Double Peak Challenge running event

Do you have what it takes to ‘Reach the Peak?’

Experience the pinnacle of North County racing by conquering the area’s highest vista on Sept. 29 at the Double Peak Challenge

SAN MARCOS, CA – More than 700 people are expected to lace-up on Saturday, Sept. 29, for the third annual San Marcos Double Peak Challenge, a running event featuring a 10k, 5k and kids trail trot courses that wind through some of San Marcos’ most picturesque locations.

North County’s most challenging race will feature a 10K timed race, a 5K untimed event, and free kids trail trot starting from San Elijo Hills Park, 1105 Elfin Forest Road.

“Double Peak Challenge is a running event like no other in our area,” said Friends of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Board Member Nick Buck. “The event is a celebration of outdoor recreation where participants get to experience unparalleled beauty atop some of North County’s highest and most scenic points. Both the 10K and 5K courses offer a challenge—a proud accomplishment for every racer.”

With festivities kicking off at 7 am, runners can participate in a pre-race cardio stretch and warm-up.

Runners participating in the 10K Double Peak Challenge will set out at 7:30 am to begin a nearly 1,200-foot elevation gain up to Double Peak’s summit while winding along rugged hillside trails with sweeping views of North County.

While the 10K race will be a tough, timed event that will challenge even the most experienced runners, Double Peak Challenge will also offer a shorter 5K untimed course at 8 am and the kids trail trot at 9:30 am. All registered 10K and 5K participants will receive a commemorative Double Peak Challenge completion medal and awards will be given to the top 10K race finishers in each age category.

The event concludes with an expo and beer garden that will be located on the lower softball fields at San Elijo Park. 10K race participants over 21 years of age (identification required) will receive a complimentary beverage. Additional drinks can be purchased for $5 each.

Race proceeds will benefit the Friends of San Marcos Parks & Recreation, which supports events, programs, parks and facilities for the community, and The San Marcos Promise, a scholarship and career guidance program for students in the local school district.

“The funding generated from this collaborative event plays an integral role in perpetuating critical programs that allow students in our community to pursue a rewarding career and set a course for a prosperous future,” said Herbie Smith, Board Member of the San Marcos Promise.

The City’s Parks and Recreation Director Buck Martin echoed Smith noting that Double Peak Challenge is a fun, healthy and helpful way to support the community. Martin emphasized that “an added incentive is the beautiful, well-earned view from the top of Double Peak that simply cannot be beat.”

Register online at www.doublepeakchallenge.com or in-person on race day at 6:30 am. The race website also provides information about corporate sponsorships that are available along with additional race-day details.
