Double Peak Challenge is a celebration of outdoor recreation like no other. Where trail runners will experience unparalleled beauty from atop North County’s highest point.
Off-road racers will set out from San Elijo Hills Neighborhood Park and begin their 1,176 foot gain up to Double Peak’s summit at 1,558 feet above sea level, winding along beautiful hillside trails with amazing views.
Not up for the full 10K? No worries! The 5k Fun Run option is a great alternative that is still quite a challenge!
Race proceeds will benefit the San Marcos community through two important non-profit organizations: Friends of San Marcos Parks & Recreation and The San Marcos Promise.
The mission of the Friends of San Marcos Parks & Recreation is to advocate for the health and happiness of the community and visitors to San Marcos by enhancing the city’s parks, recreation programs, and facilities. The Friends of San Marcos are dedicated to responsible stewardship with an emphasis on collaboration, reaching out and working to realize shared goals.
The mission of The San Marcos Promise (TSMP) is to prepare students for college and the 21st century workforce. By helping students discover their strengths, interests and values, the students are then aligned with a practical college and career path. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, a variety of programs including scholarships, real world experiences and guaranteed admission to CSUSM are offered. Since 2014, TSMP has awarded $690,500 in scholarships to program graduates.
