Click to go to the web site for the Drag-N-Fly Trail Runs Half Marathon/10K/5K in Antioch, California

Get ready to have your mind blown with the Drag-N-Fly Half Marathon, 10K and 5K!

Located on what was once the populated part of Contra Costa County, Black Diamond Mines and Contra Loma Regional Parks offer great trail running, panoramic vistas and a chance to see what much of local area was like in centuries past.

Three distances will be available: 5K (3.27 miles), 10K (6.64 miles) and Half Marathon (13.49 miles).

Start Times

Half Marathon: 8:00
10K: 8:15
5K: 8:30

All courses will have hills, the most challenging reserved for the half marathon runners! 5K and 10K will run around the lagoon on the Shore and Lake View trails. The 10K will go into Black Diamond Mines a short ways, while the half marathon will go deeper and get into some great single track in the heart of old mining operations there.

Course will be almost entirely on dirt trails.

As always, we welcome all levels of runners. Hikers/walkers too.

All finishers will receive custom finisher medals and custom shirts (cotton and tech shirts available). More info on shirts/awards page.

Age group awards will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in 5 year categories (less for the younger ages).

All races will be professionally timed.

We will have lots of extra shirts, but because we have them printed a couple of weeks before the race, we can only 100% guarantee requested sizes to those who sign up by 8/30.

Event Start Location
Locust Grove Picnic area, Contra Loma Regional Park

Course Description
All courses include rolling hills, the most challenging saved for the half marathoners!

Because of the limitations of trails, the distances run slightly long for all races. Specifically:

5K: 3.27 miles
10K: 6.64 miles
Half Marathon: 13.49 miles

Timing / Results

All races will be professionally chip timed!
