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

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

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

The course is 100% dirt trail with elevation gains up to

2100' for the Half Marathon.
