Race Information

The Western Pacific trail was originally used in the 1800s to transport gravel for the construction of the western Transcontinental Railroad, and is a key part of the Western Pacific marathon.

Choose from the marathon, half marathon, 10k or 5k distance and enjoy a day on the trails on this mostly flat course. The marathon course is USATF certified and a Boston Qualiflier.

All races begin and end at Quarry Lakes, with the 10K, half marathon and marathon races going out along the Alameda Creek Trail. Trails are primarily dirt fire trails, with sections that include gravel (used by the parks to prevent erosion) and a short paved section.
