East Bay Triple Crown Trail Championship: Tilden Tough Ten

When: Mon., May 18, 8 a.m. 2009

The Lake Merritt Joggers and Striders have a ten-mile race on Sunday, May 17, starting at Inspiration Point (Wildcat Canyon Rd., Berkeley). The Tilden Tough Ten actually begins at Nimitz Way at the crest of the Berkeley hills and proceeds for five miles, culminating with a stretch up the Mezue trail. The organizers describe the route as "very scenic" but also tell runners that the race features "one STEEP hill." There are no more spaces for runners who will take the same five mile route back down the hill, but if you want to see them at the starting line, get there at 8 a.m. How fast your favorite is will determine when the Tough Ten ends.
