Walnut Creek Half Marathon
The Walnut Creek Running Festival is a fun and exciting course for all; runners and walkers alike enjoy this venue for its ever-changing scenery and spirited volunteers along the routes.
The half marathon course is mostly flat and boasts both an uphill and a downhill portion between mile 5-7. It gives runners an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful downtown and Diablo Mountain range as they descend Ygnacio Valley Rd.
The 5K and 10K are flat and fast courses that run through some of Walnut Creek's local parks.
This is a designated Medal Race for the California Half and Full Marathon Series.
