This an elite weekend at an elite hotel. A select few runners are flown to San Diego to stay at the posh Hotel del Coronado ("the Del"), one of the moxt luxurious resort hotels in America. There is sun, sand, dinner, dancing, shopping -- and, oh yes, a fierce 5k to run on Saturday over the historic hills of Balboa Park. The sun setting on the Pacific Ocean ends a day at The Del, just as Foot Locker national finals end the high school cross country season.
