These races are perfect for first-time race participants, first-time trail runners and anybody looking for a relatively fast and beautifully scenic trail run. Home of gunpowder and dynamite manufacturers for almost 100 years, Point Pinole became part of the East Bay Regional Park District in the 1970s. With panoramic views of the bay, wildflowers, over 100 species of bird and eucalyptus woodlands (originally planted to buffer potential explosions!), Point Pinole Regional Shoreline Park is truly the hidden gem of the East Bay. If you have never been there before, you are in for a surprise. All 5K and 10K finishers will receive custom medals and race t-shirts. All Half Marathon finishers will receive custom medals and technical race t-shirts.
