Course monitors and aid stations may not yet be open for the first part of the course. Hikers are not eligible for overall or age group awards, but do receive official finish times, finisher medals, shirts, etc., exactly the same as all other runners.

Event Start Location
Bear Creek Staging Area, Briones Regional Park

Course Description
Each course includes a very short section of paved trail (about 2-300 yards) with the majority of the courses being on fire roads. All courses will finish along a 1.10 mile stretch of beautiful and very well shaded single track.

The half marathon and 10K courses will be single loops.

The 5K course is a single loop that includes one out-and-back section. This course will include a steady, but not too steep, increase in elevation during the first half, and end with rolling hills down through the single track section.

Timing / Results

All races will be professionally chip timed.

Post Race Activities
Plenty of food and It's-It ice cream at the finish area!
