Race to the Top

The City of San Marcos held its first signature 10K event, the Double Peak Challenge, in October. The event featured a 10K timed race, a 2K untimed race, and a free kids trail trot starting at San Elijo Hills Park and winding up hillside trails to Double Peak’s summit, where racers enjoyed sweeping views of North County San Diego. John Hatala took first place overall, finishing the 10K course in just over 45 minutes. All proceeds from the event benefited the Friends of San Marcos Parks & Recreation and The San Marcos Promise.
