NOTE: The course crosses two sets of rail road tracks. The Carlsbad 5000 or Junior Carlsbad 5000 races can be stopped, delayed, and are subject to change at any time (including race day) for the safety of all event participants.


Please remember to only cross railroad tracks at a designated pedestrian or roadway crossing. Observe and obey all warning signs and signals. NEVER walk down a train track – it is illegal and very dangerous. BE AWARE THAT THE TRAINS DO NOT FOLLOW SET SCHEDULES. A TRAIN CAN ARRIVE AT ANY TIME.
