A SCENIC RACE ON THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY TRAIL
Starting at the historic Craneway Pavilion, all distances will run out along the San Francisco Bay Trail with breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, and Mt. Tamalpais. The courses are flat and fast making them great for beginners or runners looking to set a personal record. The half marathon distance will have pacers thanks to the TriValley Running Club, make sure to check out the pacer page for more details!
Walkers/hikers and runners of all levels are welcome!
All finishers will receive custom finisher medals and custom shirts (cotton and tech shirts available). More info on shirts/awards page.
Age group awards will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in 5-year categories (less for the younger ages).
All races will be professionally chip timed.
2018 START TIMES
For half marathon participants who wish to hike the course and take more than 4.5 hours, we will offer a "Hiker Division" start at 7:30 am. Those starting at 7:30 should carry water as the first and second aid stations might not be 100% up and running, depending on the hikers speed. Hiker starts will not be eligible to win the race or for age group awards, but will be listed as official finishers in the Hiker Division and will still receive finisher medals.
VICTORY COURSE INFORMATION
