The Western Pacific Marathon course is USATF certified! Yes, you can qualify for the Boston Marathon using this race!
All races start and finish in the Quarry Lakes. The marathon, half marathon and 10K have large out-and-back sections on the Alameda Creek Trail. The course is mostly gravel/fire trail with a very small portion of pavement at the beginning and end. Hills are nearly non-existent, so bring on the speed!
