Race Start – 7:00am
Please note that Airport Rd. will be completely closed from Buena Vista to Estrella. Please make your way to Le Vigne via Buena Vista Rd. to avoid delays. See Directions.
This scenic course winds it way through the northeastern wineries of Paso Robles Wine Country. The course is on rural roads and the start has some flat areas and gradual climbs before heading into Hog Canyon. Please be careful as these roads are not closed to traffic. We will have traffic monitors the entire route for your safety. The largest and gradual climb (300ft) starting at mile 5 on Hog Canyon ending at mile 9 winds up through the hills. The rest of the course is even or has small rolling hills until mile 21 where you have about a half mile climb up Wellsona Rd. (100ft). After our version of “Heart Break Hill” on Wellsona, you will find a downhill section followed by the last hill up Airport road back towards Buena Vista where you will find a flat course to the finish. The rolling hills and elevation changes makes this a challenging but beautiful course.
Please note the strict 6-hour time limit on the marathon course.
