Hernia Hill Half Marathon, 10K & 5K Run

Vallecito, CA

This spectacular course near historic Murphy's, CA, offers a challenge for all ability levels.

Since 1998 our 1/2 Marathon trophies have been dedicated to Ernie Klann.  Ernie started the first Hernia Hill 1/2 Marathon in 1988.  We are proud to have been associated to continue "his" race.

On day of the event, we will adhere to current CDC guidelines in place at that time. 

All distances are beautifully scenic with hills and finish with a "dash" through the 'Wine Cave'.

5K - has one fun hill prior to the finish line
10K - Includes a dash up the finishing hill twice, so you get the punishment twice.
Half Marathon - utilizes Red Hill Road with a long and very pretty run through the California Hills...beautiful and golden at this time of year.
