Sign up for both and get a special deal!  Riding on sand is quite challenging if you have never done it.  The fatter the tire, the better.  The 5K run is very rider friendly with a 1hr cut off. The 10K riders must be at the 3.1 mile turnaround within 1/2 hour. The ride will start on the beach at La Quinta Inn Resort Hotel on the beach and run east for 3.1 or 1.55 miles (depending on the event)then turn around at designated markers and head back to the finish. The course will be led by vehicles, course marshals and signage.  There will be 2 water stops with sports drink and water hit 2X ea for the 10K and 1 hit 2X for the 5K.  This ride is a great way to see the run course if you participate in both events.
