On the Carmel Valley Trail 15K, 10K and 5K, participants will experience a combination of single track and dirt service road trails through beautiful open spaces.
Welcome to San Diego's only trail race through beautiful Gonzales Canyon Open Space and Torrey Highlands Community Park.
Participants at the 5th annual Carmel Valley trail race, regardless of distance, will experience one of the hillier courses you will find without heading to the mountains. Elevation gains are only between 300'-700" depending on the course, and some of the hills you may encounter are short, but steep. As one runner said at the conclusion of the 2016 race...
"This was one of the hardest 5Ks I have ever done."
All trails are a combination of single track and dirt service roads.
