The ultimate test in Scena Performance’s Vertical Challenge Series, the Mount Diablo Vertical Challenge promises to push even the most seasoned trail runner to the max. Mount Diablo is the San Francisco Bay Area’s most iconic peak, looming nearly 3,800 feet above sea level. The nearly 13-mile Vertical Challenge course is indeed devilish, driving you up and over 5 incrementally higher peaks in the first 7 miles before rewarding you with heavenly views from Mount Diablo’s summit, where geologists claim you can see more of earth’s surface than anywhere outside of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
After a roller-coaster descent, you and your fellow hill heroes will be able to rest your weary quads while taking in power recovery snacks and our soon-to-be-famous chocolate milk. Please note, due to the remote and steep nature of the trails there will only be one aid station at the Summit. We strongly recommend carrying at least 40 ounces of water.
