The Course

Point-to-point course, starting at the Del Mar Racetrack and finishing at the La Jolla Cove. The course has several major hills as well as sections on streets that carry normal vehicular traffic. In those sections, there will be a coned lane. You must stay within the coned lane. Water stations will be located at approximately every mile along the course.
