7301 San Pablo Dam Rd, El Sobrante, CA



 This is our 9th Fall Showdown Run with a Half Marathon/5 Miler/and 5K events. Kick off the Fall with a beautiful run at the San Pablo Dan Reservoir - El Sobrante entrance.


A little known Jewel in the East Bay, the San Pablo Dam Reservoir is beautiful. A favorite spot for avid fishermen has always been our favorite place to run and bike. The seasons change the color of the foliage and the beauty of the lake from dramatic sunrises to misty mornings. You will find a new place to train and to do your practice runs. 

 Run it or walk it, it's all good for your Health !
