The Beer City races start and finish at A Place to Play in Santa Rosa and run along the Santa Rosa Creek Trail. Click here to see the distances between Water Stops.
The Half Marathon is a figure-eight-ish course with sections around Piner Creek and Peterson Creek Trails. At Willowside, the course moves to the Southern side of Santa Rosa Creek. Runners then cross back at Fulton and do a loop out to Pierson Street and back to A Place to Play. Click on the picture of the course to see the detailed view of the course in Gmap Pedometer. The course is paved and gravel path. More than half the course is dirt and gravel.
The 10k is a loop course that includes Patterson Creek Trail. Click here to see the course.
The 5k course is an out-and-back with a loop in the middle on Patterson Creek Trail. The course returns right back to A Place to Play. Click here to see the map.
All courses are marked with ribbon and signs.
