Double Peak Challenge 10k & 5k returns to San Marcos

North County’s most challenging 10K race returns to San Marcos on Saturday, Sept. 30. The race will feature a 10K timed race, a 5K untimed event and a free kids trail trot starting from San Elijo Hills Park, 1105 Elfin Forest Road. All participants must register online at www.doublepeakchallenge.com or in-person on race day at 6:30 am.

“Double Peak Challenge is a trail run like no other,” said Friends of San Marcos Parks and Recreation Board Member Nick Buck. “The race is a celebration of outdoor recreation where trail runners will experience unparalleled beauty atop one of North County’s highest point.”

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 2,000-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 a free  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 in the lower softball fields at San Elijo Hills Park. 10K race participants over 21 years of age with proof of ID will receive a complimentary beer in the beer garden. Additional beverages can be purchased for $5 each.

All race proceeds will benefit the Friends of San Marcos Parks & Recreation and The San Marcos Promise.

“Your participation in the Double Peak Challenge supports two great causes integral to the city of San Marcos,” said The San Marcos Promise Executive Director Herbie Smith.  “Your commitment to #ReachthePeak promotes health and economic prosperity for our entire region through investment in local parks and higher education.”

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.
