All three courses are primarily fire trails through the park including sections of easy rolling hills and flats.

The 10K and half marathon courses will include short sections on a paved walking/bike path. The entire course is included within the park and there is no street running or street crossing.

All courses include panoramic vistas of the bay offering views of seven counties and about that many bridges.

The 5K and 10K courses are loops. The Half Marathon course is two loops (with views so nice, you'll want to see them twice!).

While there is little chance of anyone becoming seriously lost in the park, there is always the possibility of becoming confused as to which way you should be going -- particularly in the wooded areas where it is easier to get disoriented. For this reason we ask you to pay close attention to the course markings.

Marking will be done with flour, ribbons, signs and course monitors who will help at tricky intersections to make sure you are going the right way. By following these, you should have no trouble staying on course.


In addition to the port-a-potties at the start/finish area, there are four locations on the course where there are additional bathrooms. Half marathon runners will pass all of these twice -- that's eight bathroom opportunities on the course!
