Description: Event has a remote start. This event is a delightful exploration of the neighborhoods & historic bridges surrounding Balboa Park. It includes unique wooden, steel, & concrete bridges built across San Diego's many canyons. You are sure to love the suspension bridge. This is an area of older well-established neighborhoods with delightful architecture. The 5K obviously will not cross all the bridges. The rating of 2 is due to some steps and an elevation gain of 400 ft.
