About The Lake Chabot Trail Challenge
The Lake Chabot Trail Challenge Half Marathon, taking place on June 2, 2024, is an event that every serious trail runner should be excited about. Now in its 40th year, this race has garnered a reputation as a must-do for runners in the outlying areas of Castro Valley, CA.
The Half Marathon starts promptly at 8am and promises a picturesque and challenging course. As you traverse the hilly loop on dirt fire roads, you’ll be treated to breathtaking ridge-line views of Lake Chabot, eucalyptus groves, and the impressive sights of Mt. Diablo and San Francisco Bay. With water stations, first aid, and radio support along the route, you can focus on your stride and enjoy the natural beauty surrounding you.
For those who prefer a shorter distance, the 5K race follows an out and back course with gentle rolling hills and mostly paved surfaces. You’ll still get to experience the stunning scenery, with a water station and support available to keep you refreshed and motivated.
As for the logistics, make sure to register by Sunday, May 5th to secure a t-shirt with your entry fee. If you miss the deadline, don’t worry, there will be race day registration available. And don’t forget to bring cash, check, or Venmo for payment.
Castro Valley, nestled in the heart of California, offers a vibrant community and plenty of exciting activities. The weather in June is usually perfect for running, with mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine to fuel your race.
