    About the event
    From the organiser

    Rising up from the depths of Lake Chabot, the Bad Bass (a strangely kilt-wearing, bagpipe-playing Scottish bass with teeth) shows itself once again! Why is he Scottish? What is he doing in Castro Valley? How can he play bagpipes with his fin? We have no idea how to answer those questions. Why is he so bad-to-the-fishbone? Maybe he just knows how awesome the trails of Lake Chabot really are! Whatever the Bad Bass is doing here, we hope you'll join us at the beautiful Lake Chabot Marina in Castro Valley for the scenic Bad Bass 5K, 10K or Half Marathon!

    Come and enjoy the live music and post race festival at Todos Santos Plaza, or see for yourself, the massive 5-inch commemorative finishers medal that the half marathon runners receive, or come and run and see first hand the Naval Weapons Station that once housed our nations munitions. Run through bunker city on the Half Marathon or get bussed out to the old barracks and traverse back through the base on your way back to the plaza on the 12K course.

    All of this happens May 25th 2019, the weekend we memorialize our armed forces.
