Welcome to Skyline Endurance Run

August 4, 2024

We are very much looking forward to Skyline 50k in August! For those of you who are new to the race, Skyline is one of the oldest continuously running 50k races in the United States. The course starts and finishes at Lake Chabot Marina and travels a large loop through the East Bay Regional Parks, taking you all the way to Skyline Gate.

Skyline is known as a great race for first-timers. Each year we enjoy incredible aid station support from great Bay Area running groups like the Dusty Bottoms, Running for a Better Oakland, Lake Merritt Joggers and Striders, Pamakids and more. On course, the Volunteer Safety Patrol appears like a flash mob at key intersections to provide you direction and good cheer.

This support means that Skyline is super fun no matter where you are in the pack. For front runners, this is a fast competitive race. For former or aspiring front runners, it means Skyline is a great day you'll think about all year. Either way, it all ends back at Chabot Marina where in years past, we have stuffed you with BBQ and beer.

For information on the courses, aid stations, cutoffs, maps, crew, more GPX files than you can shake a stick at -- all the stuff that's involved in the racing part of the racing -- please visit our website. Click here.

To whet your appetite, here's a flyover of the course (click 'Flyover')

Schwag and Awards

All runners will receive a race shirt, special Skyline socks, and a finishers medal. We offer awards to overall winners and 3 deep by age group.

Half Marathon

Starting in 2021, Skyline Endurance Run has featured a half marathon. This is a looped course that starts and finishes at Lake Chabot Marina, like the 50k.

The half is true to the Skyline tradition and a great challenge for all abilities. Half runners receive the same hospitality, schwag and rewards as the 50k racers.

USATF Grand Prix and UTMB

Skyline 50k is part of the P-USATF Grand Prix. Both the 50k and half marathon races are also UTMB Index races.

Refunds and Other Policies

Generally, we don't offer refunds. Outside of 30 days, you can defer to a future year or another Scena race. For refunds and other policies, including what happens if there's a natural disaster, visit the Policies section of our website. We offer no deferrals inside of 30 days.
