Diablo 50 Mile Endurance Run - Rescheduled

Due to the last many weeks of seemingly nonstop rain here in Northern California, we have
rescheduled the Diablo Marathon & 50 Mile Endurance Run for Sunday, May 7th. It's raining
right now and the rain is supposed to continue, at least off and on, all this week and
beyond. The trails on Mt. Diablo are, for the most part, in fine shape. However, the
fireroads have been damaged or are very soft, so the rangers aren't able to reach all
parts of the course by vehicle in case of emergency, making it a safety issue.

We make every effort to avoid conflicting with other trail running events in the area. As
many of you know, the ever-popular Miwok 100K on May 6th is sold out, so we are giving
ultra runners who didn't get in Miwok a comparable option on that same weekend. Also, we
rescheduled Diablo for the next day to give serious runners a unique and challenging
opportunity to run both events back to back. We've had runners comment on the
Miwok/Diablo double and one who has already signed up to run both. We've even created a
separate category for those attempting this challenging double.
