    They added Bernardo Mountain to the race course this year so it was a little more challenging than last year. Pretty views of the lake and always super nice volunteers out on the course.
    Jeff lets the slow runners start early which I personally highly appreciate 😉
    Will do it again next year!
    This race is part of the Sunshine series which takes place throughout the fall/winter. It contains a couple of halfs, 15K, and 10k. Run them all!

    The ERS team are phenomenal at putting on this trail halves. Course was at risk but some clear directions and ore meeting brief worked a treat.
    Difficult to come down the big hill as fast as possible with the crowd heading up, but that’s part of sharing trails.
    Loved the hot food at the end, as well as the coffee. Clearly run and organized by a team of runners, for other runners.
    I’ll be back.

    Nice 8 AM start time, so not too early.

    Two out and back rolling trail routes with a bit of sandy trail. There weren’t any steep climbs. The total climb was only 185 meters. There were many short up and downs so it was a lot of quick downs and using momentum to climb up out of the steep rises.

    Had views of Lake Hodges in Escondido. Convenient free parking and all of the mountain bikers who were sharing their trails were very cordial and supportive.

    The aid stations only had water and sport drink although there were hot dogs and hamburgers at the end with chips.

    Kudos for having portapotties at convenient locations.

    300 plus for the half, 10K and 5K.
