Our Berkeley Adventure Run brings runners and walkers into two East Bay gems: Tilden Regional Park and Wildcat Canyon. Tilden offers something for everyone, including an abundance of coast live oak and eucalyptus trees. Runners can enjoy shady trails broken up by open, exposed sections serving up views of the bay, Golden Gate Bridge, and, on clear days, Mt. Tamalpais. Aid stations are located every 5-7 miles, where participants can load up on fruit, potatoes, and other runner-friendly foods and beverages. This is a fabulous race for runners of all ages and is particularly a great one for those embarking on their first trail-running event.
Time Limit: There is an 8.5 hour time limit for the 50K race.
Parking: Parking is available, free of charge at Lake Anza in Tilden Park. Carpooling is always strongly encouraged.
Race Capacity: The Berkeley Trail Adventure will have a capacity of 300 runners, across all distances.
Inside Trail Racing aid stations are replete with an optimal variety of glycogen-replenishing, electrolyte-replacing products. The following is a list of some of the foods and beverages each aid station may provide: Gu Energy gels and chews, all-natural nutrition bars from Larabar, trail mix, pretzels, potato chips, Oreo cookies, Pop Tarts, boiled potatoes with salt, Coke, Mountain Dew, Ginger Ale, water, Tailwind Endurance Fuel, PB&J sandwiches, M&M’s, Mike & Ike’s, salt tablets, and tangerines. Aid stations are also equipped with general first aid items but no anti-inflammatory medicine. As distances between aid station vary, we strongly encourage all runners to carry at least one 20oz bottle during their run.
Without the support of enthusiastic and caring volunteers producing our races would not be possible. Volunteers of all ages and abilities help with setup, check-in, aid stations, course marshaling, timing, and post-race food.
Volunteering is a fun, novel way to experience races, play in the outdoors, and spend time with friendly people. All volunteers receive a free race T-shirt, free food, and the ability to earn credit toward a future Inside Trail Racing event, commensurate to the amount of time worked. Five hours of assisting an event results in a free race credit or Inside Trail merchandise.
To volunteer for this year’s event, please submit our online volunteer form.
