Mount Diablo provides spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay Area and surrounding valleys. The 4 mile course is relatively flat and fast within Mitchell Canyon. The longer events are mountainous and very scenic. Fully-stocked aid stations every 3-5 miles. You can expect fresh fruit, salty snacks, assorted candy, water, … MORE

    The course was very well marked. Much better than some other trail runs I’ve done. I will definitely look into doing more runs by coastal trail runs. The course was good width. I did the four miles and the course length was very accurate. The 4 miler is a back and forth so it’s a mirror as far as uphill and down hill. It’s two miles uphill and then two miles down hill. The turn around reminded me of the superman ride at magic mountain. Nice post race area wit snacks.

    The SF Bay Area has several really good organizers, CTR being one. They are very consistent, so the course markings and finish area you saw would be pretty similar race to race.

    I ran this more as a “fun run” with friends than an all-out race. I knew it was a steady climb up for the first 5 miles (2400′ total), then back down the same route for the second half, so I paced myself. I mostly hiked on the ascent, as the climbs were relentless. About half a mile from the top, we reached some gorgeous views and my friend and I took a short break to take photos of each other — something I never do during a “real” race. We caught up with another friend and the 3 of us ran down together. It was really fun! I’d definitely run this race again. Also, despite my leisurely pace and a long potty break, I still came in 3rd in my age group. Gotta love these small trail races!
