Saltwater 5000 is a run, not a race. But its more than just a run. There is something cool about being able to touch the ocean, run and climb 32 miles to the top of Santiago peak, then look down and see how far you've come. Also, at 5,687 feet, you can see the finish line at every turn! "There it is baby!" Once bagged, the peak offers an incredible vista for the yearning soul. On a clear day the finish line offers a 360 degree panorama of the mighty Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island, San Clemente Island, the Palos Verde Peninsula and So Cal's most prominent mountains including San Jacinto, San Gorgonio, Baldy, Palomar and everything in between.
