The Woodmonster Trail Race

The race starts and finishes at the Chabot Space & Sciences Center, Oakland. This beautiful and challenging course is 10 miles, with plenty of hills and single track trails! The infamous Woodmonster climb is a given of course. This is a handicapped race. 

Our new start is at Chabot Space & Center Chabot Space & Science Center The East Bay Regional  Parks no longer allows races to start from Canyon Meadow. The good news is we can open to 250 runners and welcome back our team competition.

If you cannot race, please consider volunteering. We will need help marking the course, pre-running, checking-in, monitoring the course, and sweeping the course.

The Woodmonster is one of the toughest climbs in the East Bay. It is difficult, it is steep, it is glorious. To spice up the already zesty Woodmonster race, this is a fun premium to the fastest men’s and women’s times up the 0.8 mile Transports Woodmonster Climb. Even if you finish 250th  overall, you can still win by getting yourself up the hill faster than everyone else. Click for more info: Woodmonster Hill Climb Info
