The Dirt Inspires course for 2014 will run in the reverse direction of last year's course. New maps and distance markers are available on the Half Marathon and 5 Mile course pages.
The start and finish of the race will take place at a location on top of a hill within the Laguna Seca Recreation Area overlooking the Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway and hills surrounding the area.
Runners will enter the BLM lands through a gate by Skyline Road and continue onto the roads and trails with expansive views to both the ocean and the Salinas Valley.
There's a lot to do in the Monterey area. You can make a whole weekend of running, camping, sightseeing or taking advantage of some of the spas and hotels in the area.
