The Badwater Salton Sea route covers 81 miles from Salton City (elevation 234 feet / 71m below sea level) to Palomar Mountain, the almost tallest mountain in San Diego County (finish line elevation: 5500 feet above sea level.) There is a total elevation gain of over 9000 feet. Eight of the 81 race miles pass through Anza-Borrego State Park on a single track trail known as the California Riding and Hiking Trail from near Borrego Springs to near Ranchita, creating a race route which is a mix of road and trail.
