The 5K, 10K and half marathon courses are on dirt trails in Castle Rock and Mount Diablo State Park. The family hike will begin at the Orchard Staging Area and finish at Castle Rock.
The half marathon will start at 8:00 am and the course will have a time limit of 4.5 hours (those starting with the Hiker Division, 30 minutes early, get 5 hours). Runners must reach the 3rd aid station (mile 7.8) by 10:40 am.
All participants can pick up a copy of their appropriate course map on race day.
Each course will be marked with colored ribbons that are unique to their distance, so that runners know they are on the correct course.
As with all of our races, aid stations will be fully stocked with water, sports drink, gels, pretzels, candy, etc.
Runners who may need more water, should carry their own water bottle.
