The Bedrock Valley Trail Runs is a NEW trail running experience you don't want to miss. We offer something for the whole family to enjoy. Choose from the beautiful Bedrock Valley Trail Marathon, Trail Half Marathon, 15k, 5k, and bring the kids for the the 1 Mile Kid's Fun Run around Diamond Valley Lake. This is truly a historic run in an ancient place. This area's heritage begins during the Ice Age where the most concentrated amount of Mastodons once roam the earth. The remains of hundreds of Mastodons and other prehistoric dinosaurs were discovered in the bedrock of where the lake now rests.
The Bedrock Valley Trail Marathon is a great introduction into trail marathons. A fast and flat loop around the lake with a stunning single track section towards the end. Ideal for all running levels.
The Bedrock Valley Trail Half Marathon is a beautiful out and back section along the lake bed and perfect for accomplishing your first half marathon.
The Bedrock Valley 15K course challenges the runner with a little of everything: flat, fast, climbing, descending on the famous Wildflower single track trail.
The Bedrock Valley 5K is a great distance through the stunning Wildflower Trails. Great for a quick run or hike. This course does take you up and down the trails finishing along the shoreline.
The Kid’s 1 Mile Fun Run is open to children 10 and younger. This is a non-timed run. All kids receive a finisher’s medal and other goodies.
We are a CUPLESS event. Please make sure to bring some form of hydration vessel for your event.
