21K | 35K TRAIL RUN
APRIL 9, 2017
START: 7AM – EL CAJONCITO, BCS, MÉXICO
The DON DIABLO TRAIL RUN is a highly demanding 35-kilometer (21.75-mile) trail run, 100% single dirt track, which crosses the Sierra Cacachilas mountain range in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Starting from the outskirts of La Paz (Cajoncito) and finishing in El Sargento on La Ventana Bay, the course traverses many deep canyons and climbs three mountain passes with a total elevation change of 1409 meters. The trail scenery is stunningly beautiful, with large white granite boulders and hidden oases with water holes and tall native palm trees called palmillas. As the race reaches the highest mountain pass of Portesuelo de Caballos, a spectacular view opens of the Sea of Cortez and the Isla Cerralvo (Jacques Cousteau Island). This view accompanies the runners, on and off, for the last 20 kilometers of the race. Contestants cross the finish line at the Agua Caliente Beach on the Sea of Cortez on the northern side of El Sargento. Runners can look forward to refreshing themselves in the sea and in the natural hot spring that is just meters away on the beach. This will become a legendary race for its beauty and its difficulty. Come and join us for the 1st edition on April 9th, 2017. *
* This first edition of the Don Diablo Trail Run will also feature a shorter 21-kilometer race with an elevation gain of 1109 meters. It will have the same starting point as the 35-kilometer race but it will finish at Los Pisos, a campsite in the middle of the Sierra Cacachilas. Runners will be transported by shuttle from Los Pisos to the main finish line on the Agua Calient Beach in El Sargento.
