No it is not !!
I was just down last week pre running.
it is paved 47 miles past Puertecitos
the race will run on 43 miles of that paved road at 60 mph( BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
then it jumps of to the left side of the Main road (where they are still working on the pavement to Gonzaga)
It runs a fast twisty sandy road south thru a short canyon then back to FAST sandy two track to Coco's.
the Course then turns left at Coco's with a few Big wash outs out about a mile or two.
The Dirt road continues to the south / west twisting out to Hwy1 for 13 miles.
It is an easy drive from San Felipe to hwy 1 any type of vechicle............
