Description

The Hella Hard Half Trail Run is a punishing 12.9-mile semi-loop with 3,050 feet of elevation gain! In addition to the loop in San Pedro Valley County Park AND a trip to the summit of North Peak, the Hella Hard Half includes a steep climb up the Alta Vista Trail, which climbs 1200 feet in just over a mile. This trail which, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Outdoors writer, Tom Steinstra, is "the steepest trail in the Bay Area, bar none!" only recently officially opened for public use. Parca is honored to be the first organization permitted to use the trail by the National Park Service for an organized athletic event.

There are three aid stations along the half marathon course at mile 2.4, 5.8, and 10.6.
