Route information
Please remember that all routes are subject to change. You will receive a finalized route sheet when you arrive at the event.
There will be a short section of paved trail (about .4 miles) on each of the routes with the majority of the courses being on fire trails and single track trail.
All courses start near Eagles view Camp Ground. The 5k will start by heading south to the rest stop at the service yard, where it will turn around and head north to just before Hetch Hetchy Trail, before turning back around and returning to the start line.
The 10k initially follows the same route as the 5k, however near Hetch Hetchy Trail it instead heads east following the Lake View Trail to the second rest stop, where it turns around and then heads north along Ridgeline Trail. The route then turns back and heads to the finish line, taking the Ridgeline Trail back in place of the Lake View Trail.
The Half Marathon follows the same route as the 10k until the top of the Ridgeline Trail, where the route heads east along the East View Trail out to the third rest stop. It the turns around and heads north west to circling Swallow Bay and the Venados Group Camp. The route stops at the third rest stop on East Ridge Trial once more, before following the 10 route back to the start line. The Hikers route will follow the same route as the regular Half Marathon.
Each route will be marked with different color ribbons to follow so you can focus on running. 5k participants will follow the yellow ribbons, 10k participants will follow the blue ribbons, and Half Marathon participants will follow the red ribbons.
