November 3 • Chula Vista Quarry in San Diego County
Can you Crush THIS Race?
Get ready to experience a one-of-a-kind challenge!
Are you bold enough to take on one of the most challenging running events in the nation? Gear up and run or walk a route that winds down a 10% to 16% grade through hard rock cliffs to the floor of an operational quarry … then hump it back up to the finish line.
If you are up for the challenge, prepare yourself for magnificent landscapes — rarely open to the public — where you will experience breathtaking views of San Diego County.
On Saturday, November 3, Vulcan Materials Company will host its national series Quarry Crusher Run at the Chula Vista Quarry in San Diego County, California to benefit the Chula Vista Firefighter’s Foundation.
Since the very first Quarry Crusher Run at its Columbia Quarry in South Carolina, Vulcan Materials has hosted 17 races, in six states, with brave participants running or walking, while raising more than $150,000 for charity and community partners. The Quarry Crusher Run has expanded into a series of races at Vulcan Materials’ quarries in Baltimore, Atlanta, Birmingham, San Antonio and Chula Vista. And this year the series expands adding a quarry in Nashville.
The Quarry Crusher Run at the Chula Vista Quarry offers two races: the 5k Crusher ($40 registration fee), and the 10k Double Crusher ($50 registration fee). All race participants will receive a t-shirt and custom finisher’s medal. Prizes will be awarded for overall winners and age group placers. Registration for the race is now available online (runners/walkers must be at least 12 years of age and sign a waiver prior to participation).
The 2018 Quarry Crusher Run at the Vulcan Chula Vista Quarry is presented by Hawthorne Cat — San Diego’s only authorized dealer for Cat construction and power equipment. Hawthorne Cat has been proudly building San Diego for four generations.
