Northshore Big Bear Half Marathon- September 27, 2014 Big Bear, Ca.
RTDS - 3 The north shore of Big Bear lake is a short drive from south shore but the two sides of the lake are worlds apart. With very little development and the San Bernardino National Forest reaching the shores of the lake, the North Shore offers spectacular, unobstructed views of the lake and surrounding mountains, as well as a very laid back feel. Much like the North Shore of O’ahu, the North Shore of Big Bear Lake is the undiscovered jewel of the valley. So grab your board shorts and Hawaiian shirt and join us for a breathtaking run along the North Shore of Big Bear Lake.
The 13.1 mile half marathon course will be an out and back course. The course is relatively flat with only 444 feet of elevation gain. Starting at the corner on Business Center Dr., runners will head east over Stanfield Cut-off before heading west toward Big Bear Dam on the scenic highway, through the National Forest, and the mountain hamlet of Fawnskin, past the bald eagle sanctuary, to the turn around point adjacent to Big Bear Lake.

Raptor Ridge Half Marathon- October 5, 2014 Escondido, Ca.
RTDS - 4 The Raptor Ridge half marathon is an out-n-back course that begins with 4.5 miles of flat and fast jeep road that winds east towards the San Diego Safari Park and Raptor Ridge. The single track up Raptor Ridge is completely doable for stronger runners. Runners who are not as strong should expect to “do some hiking” up to the top. At the top you are rewarded by views of the entire valley. October is a gorgeous time of year and the view at the top of the ridge is impressive. As you continue down the other side of Raptor Ridge you really make up time. Lean into the hill and run fast down the opposite side as you make your way back into the flats and towards your turnaround point. Visit Website
