The Don Diablo Trail Run - November 17, 2019
The 3rd Annual Don Diablo Trail Run is a highly demanding 35K or 54K trail run. The races takes place on November 17, 2019 and registration ends September 30, 2019. The course is 100% single dirt track, which crosses the Sierra Cacachilas mountain range in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Starting from the outskirts of La Paz (El Cajoncito) and finishing in El Sargento on La Ventana Bay, the course traverses many deep canyons and climbs three mountain passes. The trail scenery is stunningly beautiful, with large white granite boulders and hidden oases with water holes and tall native palm trees called palmillas. 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 that is just meters away from the finish line. This will become a legendary annual race for its beauty and its difficulty. The Don Diablo Trail Run was voted one of the Best Trail Running Races in Mexico in 2018 by the followers of Trail Running in Mexico!
