The Reservoir Dogs Trail Race was the first trail running event allowed to completely circumnavigate the Briones Reservoir on the beautiful, normally "permit-only", EBMUD trails. Enjoy beautiful, rolling, tree covered single-track and open fire roads with sweeping views of the watershed lands on this relatively fast 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and 35K course.
Like most EBMUD trails, you will enjoy an extremely scenic run which offers more of a sense of remoteness than the typical East Bay park. Briones Reservoir is also one of the few EBMUD properties that has a substantial length of single-track trail. Most of the course is moderately rolling hills, and boasts a nice progression of quintessentially East Bay environments. You’ll first run through dense, shady woods on the south side of the reservoir; then follow the shoreline along a mostly flat stretch of trail partially shaded by oak woods; you’ll then climb into the hills where there is almost no tree cover but affords plenty of viewing opportunities of these unspoiled lands.
The Start and Finish for all races will be in the San Pablo Reservoir Recreation Area, which has a plethora of outdoor activities for all ages, including: hiking, fishing, kayaking/canoeing and picnicking.
