Xterra Mission Gorge Trail Run
A great reason to head south for a weekend, this race takes place at Mission Trails Regional Park, just east of La Jolla and just northeast of downtown San Diego. The 15k course features the 'thousand steps' and the 5k has some great trails around the old dam. The event field is limited to, so enter early!
All participants get a great (seriously, it's not a plain white one) race t-shirt, cool finisher medal, hot breakfast with all the fixin's, coffee, entry into the raffle of swag, and the satisfaction of completing one of the best races around.
