San Miguel, CA US 93451
Description

19th 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!

NEW COURSE (and certification #) - 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 this year. This course will run 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.

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).  If your license is not DHS RealID you will need your passport or passport card. Foreign nationals will need to send copies of passport, photo id/drivers license to the base security DPO by February 8, 2019 for vetting. You will be asked to sign a "Hold Harmless" Agreement at security checkin. (Because California just received an extension to April - you will NOT need the RealID this year as previously noted.)
