    Second time running the 5k, but I volunteered the two years prior to the 5ks. All races start and end at Castle Rock Park in Walnut Creek at the base of beautiful Mount Diablo. The 5k had ten (10) water crossings. These were not water crossings that you could jump over. These were stream crossing that you had to go through. Most were ankle to shin high. The water was COLD, too. The 5k measured 3.12 miles with 558 ft of elevation. There were some technical parts of the course, but the water was the most challenging aspect.
    The 5k had one aid station that we saw twice. The 5k turnaround was just past the aid station and another stream crossing. Eager volunteers were there to hand out water and sports drink. I did not stop, but Brazen AS are stocked with sweet and salty snacks, Gu, and fruit.
    All runners get a race shirt. 5k/10k get cotton and half marathoners get a technical fabric tee. The 50k runners get a special 50k shirt.
    Brazen Racing medals are first rate and this one did not disappoint. As you crossed the finish line, Sam, the race director, called out your name. This is always special after a tough race.
    There was food and drink at the finish as well as the traditional It’s It ice cream sandwich.
    A special note about this race from the Brazen Racing website:

    Don’t shy away from the stream crossings—you will get wet, so go hard and gain over those who shy away. Same goes for the downhills. Often the uphills (which are steep and long!) are single track, but the downhills are more wide open. I ran em hard—and shattered my legs, but, heck it’s racing!

    If you like hills and you like beautiful views this is a good choice. Mt. Diablo offers really sweeping views of the Bay. Get ready for some hill climbing, but the good news is there’s a sweet downhill descent to balance it all out. Lots of Creek crossings to cool your tired feet. The finish line is basically a party of folks having fun eating and getting free massages!

    It was a perfect day, and the trails were soft from rain but not muddy. This course has a lot of climb, but I stopped at the peak of Mount Diablo due to Shingles pain in my ear. I had a wonderful couple of miles with the amazing Catra Corbett and I missed one turn with a group of runners, but still give this course 5 stars since others were able to see the markings. (ok, only 4.98 stars, but I round up!) The RD gave me a half marathon medal since I ran 34.81 km on Garmin, and made it to Aid Station 4. I look forward to running this again next year!

    I bet this course this year had more water crossings then any year EVER!! What a perfect day for a perfect race. 22 stream crossings and trails that were spectacular = perfect race. I think we were even followed by a turkey. The volunteers and aid stations were spot on and the finish area was stocked to the gills. How can you say no to an IT’s IT? Come on, now.

    If you ever want to run with an amazing company, Brazen Racing is THE BOMB! These guys seriously know how to execute a race. I’ve run many of their races and plan to run many more. Many of their runs are trail and some are regular road races. They always offer a variety of distances to appeal to any level of runner: 5k, 10k, 13.1, 26.2 and even some 50k.

    Brazen Racing knows how to do it right. Their courses are well marked, aid stations well stocked and their finish line food is second to none. One really cool thing, too, is their hardware. Brazen has some of the best, if not, the best race medals around. They really are worth running for. After all, it’s all about the medal, right?

    Give them a run. You won’t be sorry you did.

    4/24/16 – BRAZEN RACING
    The absolute best run I’ve ever participated in was my recent Save Mt. Diablo 10K Trail Run last weekend. There were luxury bus shuttles to Castle Rock Park from Northgate High School and they ran frequently. A wonderful baggage check area was well organized, and they had lots of tents set up to assist people who hadn’t picked up their packets early.

    The course was beautiful with lots of hills and creek crossings. The drink/aid stations were the best part. They had all sorts of snacks, drinks, candy, treats, and even ice cold water to sponge you off if you wanted! It was amazing!

    At the finish, after receiving beautiful medals, delicious It’s It ice cream was being passed out. I picked pumpkin flavor and enjoyed the sweet treat before waiting in line for some chips, popcorn, fruit, cookies and candy. There was also a plate of BBQ available for $10, but I probably would pass this up next year – the event food was better than the plate I received.

    Everything about this race was perfect. It was absolutely my favorite event thanks to the great organizers and volunteers. Brazen racing is the best!

    All I can say is, “WOW!!!”. This is my first time running this race, but I did volunteered the past two years at Little Pine Aid Station. All races start and end at Castle Rock Park in Walnut Creek at the base of beautiful Mount Diablo. I ran the 5k. Because of all the rains that we’ve had this winter and spring, the 5k had ten (10) water crossings. These were not water crossings that you could jump over. These were stream crossing that you had to go through. Most were ankle to shin high, but I did step into one or two that the water came up to my knee. The water was COLD, too. The 5k measured 3.12 miles with 558 ft of elevation. There were some technical parts of the course, but the water was the most challenging aspect. I had not done a water run like this before. As I approached the stream and realized that there was no way of avoiding the wet, I just went for it and got my feet soaked. Wow! The water was cold.
    The 5k had one aid station that we saw twice. The 5k turnaround was just past the aid station and another stream crossing. Eager volunteers were there to hand out water and sports drink. I did not stop, but Brazen AS are stocked with sweet and salty snacks, Gu, and fruit.
    All runners get a race shirt. 5k/10k get cotton and half marathoners get a technical fabric tee. The 50k runners get a special 50k shirt.
    Brazen Racing medals are first rate and this one did not disappoint. As you crossed the finish line, Sam, the race director, called out your name. This is always special after a tough race.
    There was food and drink at the finish as well as the traditional It’s It ice cream sandwich.
    I won 3rd place in my age group and was awarded a special age group medal. That was fun and exciting to get another medal.

    A special note about this race from the Brazen Racing website:
    For over 40 years, Save Mount Diablo has worked tirelessly to preserve and increase the open space on and around Mount Diablo. In that time, their efforts have taken us from 6,788 acres of open space to over 100,000 acres of open space on and around the mountain!

    It’s an early start in the dark as you arrive to the usual suspects and volunteers at a brazen race.
    I woke up at 3:30am and drove approx 70 minutes to get there early to change my distance from the half to the 50k.
    I was greeted with big smiles and friendly staff/ volunteers. It was easy to change my distance and time to mingle with my fellow racers.
    The usual casual start line had a touch of excitement and apprehension not noticed before at any brazen race.
    It was rather cold at the start but getting a swag bag and finding room to get ready was easy.
    There were bathrooms and Porto potties so no waiting to use one. I brought some food and had time to eat and stretch then take a few start photos.
    I was offered a map but that was redundant since I can’t read small print without my glasses, so I declined.
    Besides I really just follow everyone else anyway. Which was easy for almost all of the course by the way.
    Our start did run a couple minutes late at 6:33 am just in time for sunrise so no need for a head lamp just bring one to walk from the parking lot to the start area.
    Now I don’t remember any name of each trail we hit but we started at the horse stables at Castle Rock park and ran some light rolling hills through about 12 streams , most knee high in the first 2 miles. This was by far the most fun part.
    After this we got into some damp and muddy terrain before ascending for what seemed about 4 miles . Then some very wooded area coming down to our first aid station.
    This is where you can refill your water bottles or camelbaks. I chose nuun at home then refilled at every aid station. I didn’t stay too long at any aid station. I grabbed and ran. To get to the 1st aid station took 90 minutes.
    In other words bring your own bottle and gu’s , food with you.
    I arrive at the 2nd aid station manned only by one woman who is doing her best but the food is gone and no water or drinks are out or Gu’s.
    It was a sort of help yourself kind of station.
    I get going quickly it’s mile 12.5 and I soon find the first big tree down going up the hill.
    A very nice man helps me over it as it was kind of big and too high for me.
    I’m climbing up a few miles in a wide trail, there aren’t many places on this race that has enough space for more than single track.
    I kind of ran walked this part and ate some nuts as I started go get hungry.
    The 3rd aid station I think was where we bumped into the half marathoners. It was crowded and a bit chaotic. Runners running in all directions .
    Never the less the search and rescue people and volunteers were very helpful and also be prepared to be checked in every aid station.
    Everyone is monitored and recorded to make sure you arrive before each cut off time.
    So far so good. The weather is warming but I’m not hot . I start going again and now I find myself running with new people. We chat and share stories.
    We are heading up to the first summit.
    I look at my hands they are swelling up and I started to feel a little delirious .
    I was hydrating often so I was a little surprised.
    I’m not quite sure how high Mt Diablo is but I think it’s about 3,700 ft. At mile 19.5 I made it to the summit.
    This aid station was the most organized and seemed to be very aware of how out of it we were . They took my camelbak and filled it for me gave it back and really checked in with everyone.
    There were chairs to sit and rest but I knew if I sat down I wasn’t going to get back up.
    A few pictures and potato chips later I took off.
    Apparently we had to now run down a mile the back up a mile to the 2nd summit.
    Really this was quite something.
    I stubbed my toe coming down and almost flew down the mountain, which has beautiful green hills all around . The wild flowers were out and everything looked very lush. Now that near fall actually hurt my back. A reminder don’t run and enjoy the views just stop and enjoy then run on.
    This part is single track and there were plenty of hikers coming from the opposite direction.
    Now getting to the 2nd summit deserves a mention.
    It is very steep and uneven and lots of small gravel for you to slip on.
    I was on all fours going up and on my butt coming down. It’s about a quarter of a mile up and down of hell but you will survive.
    You get a sense of I’m 2/3 there and you know you will make it.
    It’s warm and I’m now sunburnt on my neck and shoulder as I forgot sun block. It’s stinging but I plod on .
    Turns out the course was long and I had 11 more miles to go not 9.
    Anyway down the hill and it’s steep and nasty . My knees are really talking to me and I am almost walking down for miles.
    It’s rugged, bushes and very windy. This was a very difficult part for me .
    I am now running with a man called Bryan.
    We take it easy and steady coming down the cow pasture and steep hill.
    We are within the time limit and decide we will be safe and walk a few miles.
    We get to the last aid station and its bitter sweet. I thought I had 1.5 miles to go but the volunteers told us it was another 5k.
    Now we are heading through knee high grass and rolling hills and eventually back to the streams .
    I get a chance to wash off my muddy shoes and enjoy the cool water. It felt good to cool down my swollen feet and bad ankle.
    We can sense the finish line just ahead so we get going again and run the last half mile .
    The canyon was beautiful with lots of caves and rocks above us with hawks flying over .
    We finish in just over 9 hrs and 36 minutes.
    The finish line had familiar faces and cheers from the other runners.
    The medal was as always large and lovely. As a bonus I got mine engraved for free.
    Food was also brisket, pulled pork and beans or potato salad.
    I was hungry and managed to eat easily.
    Now I may have sounded like I didn’t enjoy this course but I really did in fact it was my favorite Brazen race maybe even the most fun yet very hard to date.
    In all , my watch said 32 total miles , elevation unknown as my watch ran out of battery.
    Approx 8,400 ft I think .
    This was a very technical and hard race one you won’t forget or want to.
    I can’t wait to do it again.
    You get 11 hours to run this so it’s very doable . You will feel supported all the way from start to finish.
    The other runners were very supportive too.
    You will see a lot of each other as there are a few out and backs .
    A big shout out to Oscar and Oscar Jr who marked the whole course the day before . Well done and thank you Brazen Racing

    I have a strong preference for Brazen races so its easy to always rate them high, but I enjoyed this race more then any other Brazen race. The weather was amazing, the course was everything that made me love trail running. I did the 10k and I think Sam said we would pass through 11 creeks twice 2.

    The race starts off with a nice open path a little uphill and you hit the first creek the water was freezing and felt great on my feet. You cross plenty more creeks some with water almost to my knees.

    You then hit a single track path that winds on up the mountain for 2 miles before turning and heading back down in a loop and back the way you came. re-crossing the 11 creeks again. The finish was the standard (awesome) Brazen finish line. They offered the normal fair and Its-It. The extra-ordinary plus was that there was delicious BBQ on offer.

    We stayed a couple hours longer then usual to just enjoy the amazing weather and beautiful park. Being able to watch the 1/2 marathon and 50k runners finish was inspirational. The 10k offered everything I could ask for, technical trails, single track climbs, mud and water crossings. I have to imagine the 1/2 and 50k were so tough but I will have to try the 1/2 next time!

    Great job on a tough course, congrats Tony! And glad to hear you got such perfect weather – thanks to an unseasonal heat wave the 2012 Diablo 50K was the toughest race I've ever run, so I'd love to be able to try again under more ideal conditions. Because you're right – the park really is beautiful, and Brazen does its usual awesome job taking full advantage of the trails. Look forward to your triumphant half marathon review next year! ;)

    Not my first race at Mt Diablo, but my first official 50K, and the most challenging race I’ve run so far. Finishing this race changed me as a person, absolutely for the better, and taught me a lot of tenacity and determination. The course was very well-marked, so I always knew I was in the right spot, which was extremely helpful give that it has the most difficult and technical terrain I’ve ever experienced. You climb to the Summit, as well as North Peak. The Summit is hard enough, but North Peak is a different animal. It’s steep and very slippery, I had to go slow to establish my footing on the way up, then I had to crab-walk on hands and feet on the way down. I was scared of falling, and I had come so far that I refused to wipe out and get injured now. I just sat down and carefully made my way to the bottom of the hill. That was a first! I think the best way to look at the race is to load up on sunblock and be prepared to be on Mt Diablo for the day. It’s more of a journey than a race, and the level of difficulty is intimidating. But, I just kept putting one foot in front of the other and I refused to give up. I ran when I could, and wasked the rest. I cried when I reached the last mile, I couldn’t believe I did it. One mile to go, and I was the most emotional I’ve ever been finishing a race so far. I was so grateful for the opportunity to go out and accomplish something that daunting and difficult. But I did it! And I placed 2nd in my age group:-)

    I counted 14 creek crossings this year. On the way up I tried not to get wet shoes, on the way down I splashed into the water and enjoyed it. This is a very rewarding trail race, the last 5 miles are going down or are flat. That means save energy on the ascent to fully enjoy the descent.

    This was my first 50k and difficult doesn’t even begin to describe it. Beautiful sights and views, but an extremely tough course.

    The course was changed this year and started at Castle Rock Park in Walnut Creek, instead of Brentwood, due to some nesting golden eagles. Lots of elevation, especially in the two mile climb up to the summit. It was a very warm and dry day and it’s a course where you need to stay very well hydrated and fuel well to keep going. The climb to North Peak was also very tough and a lot of runners (myself included) fell on the way down. Having a hydration pack for this type of race was very beneficial because I was able to have extra water on me and have my hands free to keep my balance.

    Despite the difficulties and heat, I finished and came in first and last in my age group! Being the only women in my age group was pretty awesome and something that will probably never happen again. In addition to my amazing medal that was also a coaster, I got a second age group medal! The tech shirt I received was for just the 50k which was also really cool.

    It was a long day for everyone, volunteers included, but they were amazing like always and made sure every runner was well taken care of. There was BBQ at the finish for 50k runners and anyone else could pay for a plate of food. After a long day on the trails and in the sun, it tasted even more amazing!!

    I love being at Mt. Diablo. It’s so scenic and the hills are worth it! This is a great course.

    This race has the majority of the elevation in the first 8-9 miles, but then once you cross the road that leads to the summit, there is an awesome almost two mile stretch or so down the hill. With all of the rain this past winter, the water was flowing and there was no shortage of soaked feet. Great way to cool off though! There is about a 5 mile stretch (between aid stations 2 and 3) that is pretty open so it’s a good idea to have a full water bottle for this section. Great views though!

    Like every other Brazen race, it is top notch. Great swag and food at the beginning, aid stations and end. No shortage in amazing volunteers either!

    There’s one parking lot and it fills up fast so you have to get there early because of the 50k. If not, there’s the option to take shuttle. Be there early enough though and you can get a spot, plus see all of your running friends!

    This is the toughest race I’ve even done. Two years in a row. Tougher than any 50 miler. 50k with 8000′ of elevation gain. Up to the summit, and north peak. Awesome race. Awesome support, volunteers, swag, people, everything. Nothing beats a Brazen race. And a Brazen ultra? Even better. That’s all for now. My legs are hurting just writing this. 🙂
