About This Activity

This challenging and unique courses will take you out on the Lake Poway Trail through the foothills
around the lake near Blue Sky Ecological Reserve.

The 5K is designed to let you pick your pace. Enjoy it as an elite trail runner, as a challenging family run or simply a gorgeous morning nature hike.

The 10K adds to this course a grueling out-and-back (or up-and-down if we're being honest) into Blue Sky and a quad-burning +10% climb to the Ramona Dam. Take our advice and start training now!

The Kathy Young Memorial Kids Race kicks off with a warm-up 15 minutes before the race starts and is perfect for kids 7 and under who aren't ready to tackle the 5K and the mini-runners who want the fun without the competition! The approximately 1/3-mile course follows a trail on the near-side of Lake Poway and finishes in the same spot as the 10K and 5K so even the kids enjoy all the fun and festivity of the main finish line. Parents are invited to chaperone their children in this race.  All school age children will receive a finisher ribbon.
