Walnut Creek Half Marathon, 13.1 Relay & 5K Race

The Walnut Creek Half Marathon is on Saturday, December 10. The majority of the run goes along Treat Blvd., then right onto Cowell Road, right onto Ygnacio Valley Rd. to Heather Farm Park, continuing to Civic Park and the finish line.

The Half Marathon Relay gives a new perspective on the half marathon. This 2-person team-timed relay is sure to be a fun and exciting event for folks of all ages. Teams can choose to run the first or second leg.

The start line of the event is located at the Civic Park entrance. The half marathon relay and the half marathon will start simultaneously at 7am.  The 5K (3.1 miles) begins at 7:30am in Civic Park East, where the festival is hosted. The 5K is a flat course, and runners will negotiate minimal turns, making this a fairly straightforward run.

Walnut Creek is expecting 2,000 participants to run through the streets to raise funds for local high schools’ sports programs For more information, visit:
