Course Description Half Marathon and 15K: Runners will follow the course markings through the grasslands until they begin to ascend a steep ¾ mile hill at mile 2 encountering their first aid station at the top. After reaching the top, runners will wind down into the canyon on a combination of narrow single track and fire road trails. After reaching the second aid station runners will descend into Suycott Wash making their way towards South Fortuna Mountain and the infamous “Stairway to Heaven.” When runners reach the stairway they will ascend up South Fortuna on steps that have been carved into the mountain. Once at the top their efforts are rewarded with spectacular views of the valley … and our own Dirt Devil Stairway Angel.

Runners now make their way to the 3rd aid station (which was also aid station #1 at the top of the hill) before descending the steep ¾ mile hill and returning on the same trails back towards the starting area.  About ½ mile before the finish runners will make a sharp left deviating from the original fire road they originally ran out on.  After the left turn deviation they will shortly make a sharp right following the double track back to the starting area.  This course is not a true out and back.  Look at the map below for more detailed instruction.

*****WARNING*****
THE 15K STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN IS A DIFFICULT, HILLY AND TECHNICAL  COURSE.   HOWEVER, IT IS ALSO ONE OF THE MOST REWARDING AND CHALLENGING TRAIL  RUNS IN SAN DIEGO.
