The 2016 Berkeley Trail Adventure is completely sold out!
Please note that registration *has closed*, and because of parking limitations, we will *not* be hosting race-day registration. Unfortunately, unless we have already provided written or spoken permission, we will have to *turn away* anyone who shows up thinking they can fill a cancellation. There is no wait-list for this race.
We really do appreciate each one of our runners, and we do not like having to say "no", but we have permit restrictions that we have to enforce. If you are not registered for this race, our upcoming Toro, Oakland Hills and Mt. Tam race have plenty of parking which means we can accommodate all of you, and we'd love to see you out there!
Our Berkeley Adventure Run brings runners and walkers into two East Bay gems. Tilden Regional Park offers something for everyone, including big time trail running. With abundant coast live oak and eucalyptus lining sections of the courses, runners can enjoy shaded trails broken up by open, exposed sections offering views of the bay, Golden Gate Bridge, and event Mt. Tamalpais, on clear days. Load up at our amply stocked aid stations every 5-7 miles.
