Tarantula Run Half Marathon/10K/5K with Kids Spider Scramble

Brentwood, CA

About This Activity

The Tarantula Run was first held in 2006, organized to recognize the District's 70th anniversary and encourage visitation to the Los Vaqueros watershed. It's held in October, since that's the time when male tarantulas are usually roaming the watershed looking for mates.

Unlike many races in the area, the Tarantula Run is very hilly and run primarily on trails. All courses are mostly run on dirt trails, with some asphalt and gravel.

Event details and schedule

The Half Marathon will start at 8:00 am, the 10K at 8:15 am and the 5K at 8:30 am. Kids Spider Scramble will start at 7:35 am.
