All five races at the Canyon Meadow Trail Run take place inside Redwood Regional Park, whose more than 1,800 acres lie just to the east of downtown Oakland. Runners will follow out-and-back routes for each of the races, all of which start and finish at the Owl Picnic Area inside the park, just off Redwood Road. The half marathon takes runners on a counter-clockwise loop along the trails known as the East Ridge and West Ridge trails that snake around the edges of the park.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
