ZombieRunner Quarry Lakes Run Half Marathon

Sunday, December 7, 2024 • Fremont, CA • Course Map

For those looking to begin trail racing, the ZombieRunner Quarry Lakes Run Half Marathon in Fremont, California is a great start. The course appeases both trail and run runners alike — roughly 64 percent of the race is held on crushed rock, while the remaining 36 percent is run on pavement.

The course does feature a number of loops and turns, but the elevation change is very minimal. Runners should expect a very fast trail race.

The race begins at the Quarry Lakes Regional Recreational area and runners will follow the Alameda Creek Trail up to the mouth of the Niles Canyon. Racers will begin along the perimeter of the lake and take the course heading west. Runners will pass Shinn Pond and travel along the Alameda Creek until reaching Old Canyon Road.

There is a u-turn along the course at Old Canyon Road. Runners will take the course back along Alameda Creek and return to the Quarry Lakes area. After passing the Quarry Lakes area, racers will travel along north side of the creek.

Upon reaching Alvarado Boulevard, runners will then cross onto the south side of the creek. They will take this section of the course all the way back to the Quarry Lakes area and the finish line.

The top male and female runners will receive awards along with the top 3 in each age category. All finishers will receive a medal upon crossing the finish line. Runners will have 3 hours and 35 minutes to complete the course.
