This race belongs on a list for best "secret" races. This is a local gem that really deserves to be "discovered" by a wider audience. This is a small-town, yet well-produce yearly event. In the mountains between Hemet and Palm Springs this is a perfect destination race. The course is challenging due to the altitude and some prominent hills, but SO fun!! Don't let the travel time or altitude scare you off from joining this WONDERFUL event. See you there next year :).
