COVID-19 Update


It goes without saying that the COVID-19 situation has impacted all of us in our beautiful region and beyond. Therefore, in an effort to keep everyone healthy and safe, we have decided to postpone the Devil’s Slide Run/Ride to Saturday, October 17. Rest assured we will offer the same devilish routes, climbs, epic descents and amazing scenery and support.

The PARCA staff was thrilled we were able to transfer all of the required permits to the new date. The Devil’s Slide Run/Ride is one of our clients’ favorite days of the year, and they, like you, love the camaraderie that binds our fellow outdoor enthusiasts.

If you have already registered for the Devil’s Slide Run/Ride, your entry will automatically be transferred to the new October date – there is no need to do anything further.  If you cannot make the rescheduled date, you have the following three options – please click here to complete this form by Friday, May 29, 2020 to let us know your preference:

Thank you for supporting PARCA and individuals with developmental disabilities. In these challenging and uncertain times, it’s more important than ever to support one another, take care of our health and stay active, in a safe and responsible way.

We look forward to seeing you all on October 17!

The Devil's Slide Run Benefitting PARCA

Run the most scenic trails in Northern California, while supporting more than 1,000 individuals with developmental disabilities. The DSR features five courses that offer something for everyone, from weekend warriors to hard-core endurance athletes. Each distance features breath-taking coastal vistas, fearsome climbs, rolling hills, epic descents and best-in-class support. The 50k, 30k, and half marathon feature the Alta Vista Trail, a cruel and beautiful climb that is dubbed the steepest in the Bay Area!

The Devil’s Slide events also feature a devilishly fun and challenging ride. Check out our sister site.

Infernal 50k

New this year! Are you up for the ultimate challenge? The Infernal 50k boasts more than 7,000 feet of climbing into this beautiful and very tough course. You will run through beautiful coastal vegetation, climb one of the steepest hills in Northern California (twice!), while enjoying spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco County.


Devil’s Dirty Thirty 30k

A true test of endurance, the Devil’s Dirty 30k packs a whopping 4,122 feet of climbing into this beautiful and tough 18.1-mile course. This 30k has it all: challenging climbs, long downhills and stellar views from some of the best trails on the San Francisco Peninsula.


Hella Hard Half Marathon

The Hella’ Hard Half Trail Run hurts so good — a challenging 12.5-mile semi-loop with 3,908 feet of elevation gain and sweeping views of the California coastline. It includes the infamous Alta Vista Trail, dubbed “the steepest trail in the Bay Area, bar none!” by the San Francisco Chronicle.


Evil Eleven 11k

The Evil 11k Trail Run is a fun and challenging 7.0-mile semi-loop with 1,639 feet of elevation gain. You’ll find love at first sight with views of the Pacific Ocean and the San Francisco Peninsula.


Fiery Four 4k

The Fiery 4k Trail Run/Hike is a moderate 2.6-mile loop with 629 feet of elevation gain in the lush and shaded San Pedro Valley County Park. If you are not running too fast, you may even catch sight of the seasonal Brooks Falls from the Brooks Creek Trail.
