HIT the new year RUNNING A 5K, 10K OR HALF MARATHON! The sun is rising on Friday morning, January 1st, the first day of 2016. Where should you be? Pounding the trails of Lake Chabot, of course! Join us at Lake Chabot in Castro Valley for the scenic and invigorating 5K, 10K or half marathon. Better yet, make sure you run at the Brazen (Almost) New Year’s Eve race and then you can start 2015 with the highly coveted New Year Mega Medal! Learn about the New Year’s Eve race here. Take it even one step higher by running both half marathons (one on 12/27 and one on 1/1) and then brag to your friends: “It took me two years to finish that marathon”! The half marathon runners will run the same course both days, but in different directions each day. All courses include rolling, but mostly very runnable hills. Because there is always a chance of rain before and (hopefully not) during the race, the courses chosen are generally “wet weather” friendly. This means the 5K will be entirely on paved trails around the lake. The 10K course is roughly 50% on paved trails and 50% on dirt trails. The half marathon is approximately 30% on paved trails 70% on dirt trails. So whether you are an experienced trail runner or a first-timer ready to get your feet dirty, you should thoroughly enjoy these races. Hikers/walkers are always welcome! All runners will receive custom finisher medals and custom shirts (cotton and tech shirts available). More info on shirts/awards page.
