The Atascadero Firefighters Association presents: The 2nd Annual Firehouse 5k and Health Fair. This is a unique 5k course incorporating both road and trail. It starts at Atascadero Fire Station 1, heads into the beautiful Stadium Park and returns to the fire station. It is guaranteed to provide gorgeous views of the city, challenging terrain and fun for all. Walkers and hikers are more than welcome.
It has been voted the “Toughest 5k” around. This course is amazing and challenging. It is the perfect variety of road and trail which is unheard of for a 5k course. The course consists of 1 mile on flat roads. The trails of Pine Mountain provide the other 2 miles with over 500 feet of elevation gain and loss. It has some flat for the speedy sprinters, some climbing for the mountain goats, and some downhill for the risk takers. You will not find another 5k course like this anywhere.
Start at Fire Station 1, runs down Lewis Ave to West Mall, turns Left and runs to Capistrano to the entrance of Stadium Park. Heads up the switch back trail to Pine Mountain loop. Crests Pine Mountain and heads down to the Blue Oak Trail. Takes the Blue Oak to the main gate and gets back on the road. Turn left on Capistrano, Right on Lewis Ave and enters the final stretch to finish at Fire Station 1. All turns will be marked with flagging and volunteers. Water at Mile 1 and Mile 2.5
