Pier To Peak

  • Dolphins to Gibraltar to La Cumbre Peak

Pier To Peak is back!  P2P has been a long time sponsor and supporter of Echelon and it is time for us to give back.

Presented by RunSantaBarbara, the folks that bring us Nite Moves, Pier To Peak and other great running events, this is billed as "the world's toughest half marathon" and that is no idle claim. Starting at the Dolphins and finishing on the very top of La Cumbre Peak, well, I don't have to tell you what that's like, and I've only ever done it on a bike. (This running thing, as I understand it does not involve a bicycle. Crazy, right? Unless, of course you're being chased.)

Echelon, along with SBBC and others, provides a rolling escort for the hundreds of intrepid runners, some who will challenge you up Gibraltar on your best day, some of whom are a bit slower. We control the intersections as they make their way safely through town and then accompany them up the mountain - just because we're already up and why not? We are also great encouragers of these hearty souls - you'll probably know some of them. Others you'll get to know as you pace them up.

This is truly a great event, attracting people from all over with it's challenging course, and we have always been a part of it. Even though it's an early wakeup on a Sunday it is super fun, more fun than you can imagine, and we are really helping this event happen.

Be at the Dolphin Fountain in time for a 6:30 rollout. Have your blinky lights on. P2P will provide safety gear. We'll break into teams of two and make this another safe and successful Pier To Peak! After, we'll meet at the top and ride down together; some will ride out to Painted Cave or wherever.

See you there!
