The Coyote 5K is brought to you by Dirt Devil Racing.com ... please be sure to visit the www.DirtDevilRacing.com website for complete race details, course description, photo gallery, and other general information.
NOTE COURSE CHANGE THIS YEAR!! Due to the Rock-N-Roll Marathon taking place on the same day, there are numerous road closures around San Diego ... but it will NOT affect our trail race NOW being held at Marian Bear Park off of Highway 52 between Interstate-5 and Interstate-805.
Course: This San Diego 5K is located in central San Diego just minutes from Sea World, La Jolla, the beaches ... and runs through Marian Bear Memorial Park right in the heart of San Diego. The race starts at the West end of the Marian Bear Parking lot, loops thru the canyon, and ends in the same location. A pretty tree-lined course, with single and double-track trails.
The Coyote 5K is the first in the Dirt Devil Grand Slam Progressive Series. The 2nd is the Sidewinder 10K in July, August brings the Stairway to Heaven 15K the 3rd in the Series, and finally October is the 4th and last in the series ... our Raptor Ridge Trail Half Marathon.
Prizes: All Finishers will receive a commemorative BEER GLASS with race logo and date of event for this race, and EACH of the four races in the Grand Slam Progressive Series. By completing ALL 4 Grand Slam Races, runners can earn a set of all 4 glasses and the awesome Grand Slam Series Award.
To be eligible for the Grand Slam points series and the cash/prizes that go with it, you must participate in the Coyote 5K race as well as the Sidewinder 10K, Stairway to Heaven 15K and the Raptor Ridge Half Marathon.
Great race schwag ... beautiful course, perfectly marked ... fun race staff, and an awesome post race party with breakfast buffet ... are just a few reasons to come run the Coyote 5K!
Be sure to sign up early ... as this race WILL SELL OUT a month in advance. Last year's Waiting List was almost as long as the number of runners who participated.
