Camp Roberts
US - 101 Exit #244
San Miguel, CA US 93451

20th annual meditative and serene run and is a Boston Qualifier (among others). All races are run on the grounds of historic Camp Roberts Army National Guard Reservation, just north of San Miguel, California. Out-and-back course on paved road with dirt and packed gravel shoulders. Flat to gentle rolling hills, with breathtaking views of oak-studded hillsides, Salinas and Nacimiento Rivers and abundant Central Coast wildlife. Some compare course to a trail run. Start line is at 620' at corner of Arizona and Ave 14 and rises to 945' at the marathon turn-around spot. You will truly enjoy this event!

Buzz turns 20! Lillian Larsen School & Athletics turns 70! The Hornet Queen and husband celebrate 50 years of marriage.

NEW COURSE ( #CA19003RS) 2019- due to construction out on a section of the course (and gymnasium still under renovation) and troop training we designed a new course and had it certified for another 10 years. This course runs a loop of the cantonment, drop down a small hill and cut over to Perimeter Rd then out to General's Rd and back in repeating the cantonment loop in reverse.

Child care available by request. If your child is in the mile run for the under age 12's we will get them to start line and pickup from the finish. Museum and annex open during race and some military vehicles for viewing/climbing.

SECURITY NOTE: To enter this federal facility you will need driver's license, car registration, and proof of insurance (rental agreement works if you have a rental).  Foreign nationals will need to send copies of passport, photo id/drivers license to the base security DPO (or race director) by February 7, 2020 for vetting. Everyone entering base will be asked to sign a "Hold Harmless" Agreement at security checkin. 

Book lodging early! This is a weekend wine country destination as well as big 4H/FFA Western Bonanza at the Midstate Fairgrounds so rooms fill early.
