Windfall Full Moon Trail Run

Epic Recess is getting flashy - and reflective!
Come experience our night time escapade, the Windfall Full Moon Trail Run!


There's no better time to experience a great summer night outdoors in San Diego. As bright as the moon will be we still require all runners to bring a headlamp or flashlight for safety. Have fun with it though, make yourself as light and bright and funky as you want! You won't want to miss this!

The Courses

We will be marking 4 distances with reflectors and reflective markers. We have a 5k loop as well as a 10k loop and if you decide you want to run both that's 15k! For the truly brave night runners looking for a challenge doing them twice is a full 30k! The trails are mostly single track trails with ups, downs, and some technical footing which can be challenging in the moonlight. These are private trails that can't be accessed except for during our events.
  • 5k
  • 10k
  • 15k
  • 30k


Camping will be available on site and will open at noon on the day of the race. Camping is free in the large open fields of the ranch. Dogs must be leashed at all times. The ranch dogs roam freely and we don't want to have any issues. Porta-potties and water available.

Aid Stations and Goodies

Gatorade Endurance will be sponsoring our well stocked aid stations and they will be served by very happy volunteers! All of our aid stations will be reflective and aglow so they can be spotted easily on the trails. Our aid stations will be stocked with fluids, fruits, and snacks. After the race there will be drinks and cookies.
T-Shirts will be handed out with bib pickup, and all completion goodies will be handed out at the finish line. We will have division awards in all distances.
