Route information
Take part in the most scenic & beautiful 200 miler that runs through San Diego and the surrounding county. Starting in Escondido, the route runs to Torrey Pines and then runs 25 miles along the coast.
Once it hits Chula Vista, the run heads east towards Mother Miguel Mtn and climbs over to Jamul and El Cajon. It then runs alongside Kumeyaay Highway to Viejas Indian Reservation, where it goes up and over Viejas Grade Rd to Descanso.
Here the run heads north and climbs trails up towards Cuyamaca Peak, taking in the stunning views of San Diego. Once it reaches the peak, the run heads Conejos towards Lake Cuyamaca, 135 miles into the course.
From Lake Cuyamaca, the run will head toward the town of Julian and continue toward the Anza Borrego desert. Upon reaching Banning the course follows some historic (and possibly haunted) trails on the way to Julian High School. After Julian, the run turns north to the Santa Ysabel east preserve, before heading west.
Heading west, the run passes through the Santa Ysabel west preserve, and continues to Mesa Grande. The run then heads through Cleveland National Forest, and then toward Pamo Valley to the finish at the Pamo Valley Orosco Ridge trailhead.

Application
This event will only have 25 participants, so to decide who will take part the organizer is asking all applicants to submit a 1500 word essay explaining their "How". Note from the organizer:
"Everyone these days is concerned about your "Why". If you ask enough runners our "Why"s start to all sound the same and we all know on some deep level Why we are out there with each other so it makes no sense to ask why. I would like to know your "How". How do you keep strong when you feel most weak? How do you do these seemingly impossible feats? How do you do what you do? Who helps you? I would also like to know your story and why you think you would contribute to the integrity of this race."
All well as the 1500 words, you will need to have completed at least one 100 miler before this, preferably more than one, and a 200 miler would be best. This is an intense event and will require a lot of serious training.
