Welcome to The 2nd Annual Black Mountain Trail Half Marathon and 10K!  The most technical race on the ERS" Sunshine Series schedule. 

Join us November 24, and burn off all that Thanksgiving food, as we race up to Black Mountain Peak in the beautiful Rancho Penesquitos area of San Diego County. 

The race location has moved over to Black Mountain Park, to give the event a more relaxed and spacious feel, but don't worry runners... you are still going to hit the top of Black Mountain. 

The courses are both 100% double wide trail, with a small mix of single track. Half Marathon elevation gains will be around 2100' 

Join us November 24, as we race up and over Black Mountain peak in the beautiful Rancho Penesquitos area of North County San Diego.   The race is an uphill start with a downhill finish (your welcome) located near Mt. Carmel High School on Sun Devil Way. The course is 100% dirt trail with elevation gains between 400'- 700' depending on which course you choose to complete. 


*We have adjusted our prices, so that they do NOT include a race shirt. If you would like to take advantage of the shirt option, it is $5, and can be added in the Swag area of your registration.  For those runners adding the shirt option, we ask that you register at least 10 days prior to race day, to be guaranteed of your shirt order. If you are within the 10 day window, we will ask you to pick up your shirt after the race, from the sizes available. We will do our best to accommodate all requests
