Route information
Terrain: Paved and Trail
The 5k course begins in the woodlands of Lake Chabot Regional Park as participants enter some short, paved rollers while they jink through a twisting section. The course runs alongside Lake Chabot and runners will be able to take in beautiful sprawling surrounds as they reach the 2k mark.
The course is run under an out-and-back format, runners will turn around the 2.5k mark to return back to the start/finish area. They will be flanked by woodland throughout, making for a scenic and unique race experience.
The 10k course follows the 5k route before continuing northbound through lush woodland. Competitors will tackle a steep hill at the 5k mark before the course opens up at the 6k point, with fewer trees at this section. Runners will retrace their steps in this out-and-back format, ending at the start/finish area.
The Half Marathon takes runners around the entirety of Lake Chalbot as they follow an anti-clockwise course that takes them past beautiful scenes such as Coot Landing, Alder Point and Live Oak Island.
Participants will drift past Chabot Park following through Hawk Bridge Group Camp as they tackle a tough incline section before transferring from The Skyline Trail onto the Columbine Trail.
Runners will breeze through this panoramic section which snakes alongside the Grass Valley Creek. After scaling the lookout Ridge and drifting past the beautiful Sunset Bench, runners will enter the 10k course which they will follow back to the finish line of this loop format.

Sasquatch Racing
We are a party production company with a running problem. We want you to have a blast at our parties (ahem…races) and we’ll try to do this in a variety of unconventional ways. For example, our first race involves an urban legend. We also start our races a bit later than most (9:30AM vs. 8AM). There’s also beer at the end of our race. If you do the half marathon, you get a medal that acts as a bottle opener (for the aforementioned beer).
