Adrenaline is our second race in the 2022 Insomniac Night Trail Run Series. Choose from distances of 6K, 10K, 15K, 25K and 50K.
Rolling desert trails on single track with fast smooth sections and challenging mountainous sections. Tour the Escondido and Cinch trails along with the picturesque Scenic ridge trail. Featuring a long loop and a short loop, runners will experience a variety of conditions and challenges. All courses will now join up and return along the Shallmo Trail.
Expect warmer running conditions at the start 90+ degrees) with temperatures typically in the high 70's as the night progresses. We will have plenty of ice and water on course to keep you hydrated.
The race courses will be well marked with orange ribbons with black polka dots and reflective medallions. Trail junctions and turns will be marked with laminated signs. In addition, blue & white checkerboard plastic flagging will be hung to designate non-race or “WRONG WAY” trails. All runners are responsible for understanding the layout of the course. Please familiarize yourself with the course maps on our website prior to race day and/or download the gpx file to your phone.
In addition to a fully stocked aid station at the start/finish line at the Four Peaks Staging Area, there will be one fully stocked remote aid station- Escondido Aid- located along the Long Loop course that runners will pass by every loop. There will also be a water only aid station at the Pemberton Trailhead. The Escondido & main aid stations will be stocked with water, ice, electrolyte drinks, salty and sweet snacks, fruit, pb&j, bean rollups, hot food (quesadillas, grilled cheese), and more. This is a CUPLESS Race. Please come prepared with your own reusable cup or you will be able to purchase a cup on site.
