Map  |  Elevations  |  Descriptions

Mount Diablo provides spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding valleys. On a clear day, you can see the Sierra Nevada mountain range on the horizon. The course is hilly and scenic on single-track trails and dirt roads. The 25km course climbs to the summit (3,849 ft.) and returns to the Mitchell Canyon Trailhead. The 50km event does two loops to the summit. Photos (Distances are accurately measured using a Rolatape® surveyor's measuring wheel.)

Aid Stations:

Fully-stocked aid stations every 8 kilometers. You can expect fresh fruit, salty snacks, assorted candy, boiled potatoes and 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.
