2,430 acres of land extending north from Tilden Park, Wildcat Canyon Regional Park is normally inaccessible to trail runs due to a lack of staging area. Thanks to a generous concession by the East Bay Waldorf School (which sits next to a trailhead), however, we are finally able to make these incredible trails available for a run you won't soon forget! Views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Mount Tamalpais, the Bay and even the ocean await you.
Hikers/walkers are welcome.

Wildcat Half Marathon, 10K & 5K routes
All courses include challenging (but view-rewarding) hills to go up and down. We recommend walking the uphill sections and saving your energy for the flat and downs! Except for the start/finish on a grassy field and a couple of small paved sections (less than 10%), the courses run on fire trails (with a section of single track for the Half Marathon).
All participants will receive a copy of their appropriate course map on race day. Each course will be marked with colored ribbons, signs and flour, so that runners know they are on the correct course. As can be seen in the course map link above, with the exception of the out-and-back section of the 5K, there are no sections where runners will be going in the opposite directions of other runners, making the course extremely straightforward and easy to follow. Volunteers will also be on the course at key locations to help direct runners.
