The Wildhorse Trail Half Marathon and 10K promises to deliver the ultimate in a trail running experience around Otay Lakes and the USA Olympic Training Center.
The Wildhorse Trail Half Marathon and 10K is brought to you by Dirt Devil Racing.com and is the second in the Half Marathon and Progressive Race Series. Being one of four trail half marathons (and probably the friendliest course), Wildhorse promises to deliver the ultimate in a trail running experience. If you plan to do the series, do NOT miss this second race! If you do not plan to do the series...this is still one of the best Half Marathon courses we offer. It sold out last year, and we expect the same this year! The Wild Horse 10K is flat and fast with mostly lake view single track technical trail.
Situated around Otay Lakes and the USA Olympic Training Center, the Wild Horse Trail Half Marathon traverses some of the most spectacular surroundings that can be found in San Diego County. As the gun goes off, racers will start on the Southwest side of Otay Lakes with sweeping views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. As the race begins, runners can take advantage of the flat, fast start for the first mile following the dirt/gravel road around the lake towards the Olympic Training Center. Once there the trail dips down along the lake edge offering well groomed single track on the way to the first of many footbridges and aid stations. After the first aid station the trail bends around the lake and continues on single track trail right along the lake shore. The trail remains flat and fast winding amongst the trees until aid station two at mile 3.7 near Otay Lakes Road. Depending on the lake water level runners will either continue along the lake shore or be diverted onto Otay Lakes Road for a brief period of time before continuing around the lake. Runners arrive at the turnaround and 3rd aid station and should pause to take in the view of this inspiring San Diego resource. The views from the third aid station are amazing. On the return trip, runners will be diverted to Upper Otay Lakes (and the smaller of the two) and then return onto the single track going back the way they came. The race finishes back at the Start/Finish area where you will be cheered and greeted by the Dirt Devil Racing staff and crew, in addition to family, spectators, and a Finisher’s Award.
With a fast double track trail start runners pass the Olympic Training Center before entering the single track trail that runs along the lake. Run through reeds, over bridges along the lake before turning around at the second aid station...this is a fast, fast 10K!
