Coyote Hills Half Marathon

The low-lying Coyote Hills rise as a prominent landmark on the eastern shoreline of San Francisco Bay, along the western edge of southern Alameda County. Archaeology has revealed that Native Americans have lived in the area for at least 12,900 to 13,500 years. The Tuibun Ohlone village site (which is more than 2,000 years old) may be visited at Coyote Hills Regional Park on naturalist-led programs. Learn more about Coyote Hills Regional Park here.

Hikers/walkers are always welcome!
