Habitat is a volunteer driven non-profit international organization building simple, decent, affordable housing for the people living in substandard conditions. The program is not a give-a-way program. Each family must put in 500 hours of labor "sweat equity" and make low non-interest mortgage payments.

The Diamond Valley Lake Marathon course is rolling with no major hills. Approximately six miles of the marathon is on smooth asphalt with the rest on compacted dirt access roads with some loose gravel, sand and rocks. Runners will first run a 2.5 mile out-and-back segment from the Start/Finish area in the East Marina. This will follow a westerly direction from the paved parking lot along the dirt north shore drive road. Once the course returns to the East Marina, runners will complete 21.2 mile clockwise circumnavigation of Diamond Valley lake on Lake Shore Drive.
All races are on dirt roads, except for asphalt on top of dams. Compare this course to a beautiful country trail run with excellent footing. Mile markers every mile. Course monitored and measured to USATF standards
