Castro Valley, CA
Distance: Half Marathon · 10K · 5K
The sun is rising on Monday morning, January 1st, the first day of 2019. Where should you be? Pounding the trails of Lake Chabot, of course!
Join us at Lake Chabot in Castro Valley for the scenic and invigorating 5K, 10K or half marathon.
Better yet, make sure you run at the Brazen New Year's Eve race and then you can start 2019 with the highly coveted New Year Megan Medal!
Take it even one step higher by running both half marathons (one on 12/31 and one on 1/1) and then brag to your friends: "It took me two years to finish that marathon"!
Lake Chabot Reservoir was built in 1874-75 as a primary source of water for the East Bay. The 315 acre lake was closed to recreation for 91 years until legislation opened it up in the 1960s. Today the lake serves as a standby emergency water supply and is a favorite of local fisherman looking for trout, catfish, bass and other fish.
