Run (or hike) El Capitan

Join us Sunday @ 7am (sorry about the date change) for a challenging run with some of the most rewarding mountain views you will find San Diego...out and back is about 11 miles. Hope you like hills : )

Here's the course profile [http://connect.garmin.com/activity/204369823]

Directions: If you're familiar with Barona Casino, the trailhead is a few miles south of the casino on Wildcat Canyon Rd in Lakeside.

Coming north from Lakeside, the El Capitan Open Space Preserve trailhead parking lot is just past the 4 mile marker on Wildcat Canyon Rd, at the intersection of Shenma Rd, on the right side. On the opposite side of the road is Oak Oasis County Park. If you continue a few miles north you'll reach the casino.

Here's a must-read trail review by the late great Jerry Schad [http://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2002/nov/21/tackle-severe-ups-and-downs-old-mining-track-throu/]

    Sorry everyone, there was a conflict with Dr Runco's meet up on Saturday so I had to switch the run to Sunday. I hope you all can still make it!
