Runners will leave the expo area and run on the San Diego Creek Trail, the backbone of Orange County’s trail system. As with the half marathon, this is a fast and flat course where runners can post a new personal record.
This is an out and back course and has one aid station that each runner will pass twice.
The 5k sold out in 2018, so make sure you buy your tickets early.
