Weather:  Oakland



The course will be marked with ribbon approximately every 200 meters and color coded as follows:

10 Km - Yellow

20 Km - Pink  

30 Km - Pink, plus Orange spur

50 Km = 30 Km + 20 Km

The most important course marking is the striped ribbon.  It indicates a turn at an intersection.  There will be at least two striped ribbons before a turn in the course.  The striped ribbons will be placed before and on the same side as the required turn.  As you approach an intersection, look for any striped ribbons before the turn.  Waiting until you're in the intersection to determine the correct direction may be confusing and you may go the wrong way.  After you complete the turn, there will be  yellow, pink, or orange ribbons indicating the correct route. 


If you don't see your respective ribbon for 3-4 minutes, you are off course.  If you get off course, you should retrace your path until you find where you left the course and then continue along the marked course.

Your Bib Number indicates the distance that you're running. If you want to change your distance, please send us an e-mail  or let us know by check-in, at the latest.

Many of the parks in California have poison oak. We recommend staying on the trail and washing with Tecnu after your trail run. Occasionally, bees or yellow jackets may be active and precautions should be taken if you're allergic.

No dogs allowed on the course. Please don't leave pets in your vehicle.

Aid Stations

Fully-stocked aid stations every 3 - 12 kilometers. You can expect fresh fruit, salty snacks, assorted candy, boiled potatoes & salt, water, and Clif Shot Electrolyte sports drink. If you would like to be sure that you have Clif product, SaltStick capsules, or any other specific item at the event, you should carry it with you. Additionally, it is highly recommended that runners carry at least 20 oz. of water between aid stations.
