“A great event to experience the full China Camp State Park!”— Phil Oreste
Featured Race - Jan 26, 2019
There is a fully stocked aid station at mile 7 for the half marathon and mile 3 for the 10K. There is no aid station for the 5K. We encourage everyone to bring a full water bottle with them during the race and you can always get a refill at the aid station.
Tucked behind the town of San Rafael and located along the San Francisco Bay, China Camp State Park is a wonderful park for hikers, mountain bikers and, of course, runners. There are lots of singletrack trails to enjoy as well as views of the great landmarks of the Bay Area. Runners enjoy China Camp for its natural canopy of trees which protects you rain or shine, the diverse tidal marshes and the wild turkeys everywhere! This event gives runners a taste of all that the park has to offer.
