Growing up in Pinole, I am very familiar with this course. This is an easy trail run, as its mostly flat dirt trails (for the longer distance, there is a bit of paved road), and no big hills. I am trying to get my anti-trail running friends to join me here, since this is a great a introduction to trail running for a beginner. Brazen does it again with the race support, aid stations, volunteers, and race swag. And yes, I had my vanilla Its-It after! mmmmm

Not going to lie, this isn’t for the faint of heart. The first climb right out of the gate makes you question why you are doing this. Then, the second climb, and the third, and don’t forget that last big one at miles 10-12. But, the course is amazing and takes you on many different landscapes. The views of SF Bay are outstanding, and the aid stations are always full of what you need to get you through.

Alice in Wonderland themed. Can I say more? This is my PR course, and it’s simply the best! The gently rolling paved path along the creek make for the small climbs and the speedy downhills a runner’s dream. Again, Brazen is just fantastic. The aid stations and volunteers are amazing and supportive. Oh and the medals. So cute!!

I had never run this one, but Brazen streaking is in my future. I set out to run a nice morning 10k and ended up with a PR! Fast and flat. Loved it! Brazen is just the BEST! Views of the bay are with you the entire way.

I love everything Brazen. That being said, this was another great race. Wonderful weather, great course (even though about half way through it feels like a roller coaster), fantastic aid stations, amazing volunteers, and cool FUZZY bear medal!! Once at the top, the view from Benicia to Mt Diablo is spectacular. I wish I had stopped to take pics, but I was on track for a trail PR.
