January 9, 2021
RACE UPDATE: Due to continued restrictions on the State of California and the County of San Diego, the ERS has been required by the San Dieguito River Park and it s rangers to switch the 2021 Del Dios Race to a virtual race option only. We know this is not the information you would like to hear, and we apologize we are not able to deliver great news.
We will moving the virtual race date to January 9th and creating a modified course for the virtual runners due to the original staging area being closed making it difficult for virtual runners to run the original course. The ERS staff will plan to be out there on the 9th from 7am-10am handing out packets to those runners interested in showing up and running the course with other runners.
Welcome to the " RACE OF THE GODS" or more commonly known as the Del Dios Trail Half Marathon 10K, and 5K. This 5th Annual event is located at beautiful Lake Hodges in Escondido, CA.
Join us January 9, 2021 , and take in the picturesque views of one of San Diego's most beautiful lakes, as all courses will feature dirt service roads or single track trails, with elevation gains between 100'-500'. When hills are present they are short and sweet...we mean steep.
The Half Marathon will see a course change this year, and feature Bernardo Mountain Summit and a 700' climb over 2 miles.
Please note... The Lake Hodges Boat Ramp area is closed to the public during the event and all runners, staff, and volunteers will need to have a parking pass (given by the ERS) visible in their dashboard when onsite.
