2015 Cal Challenge


On race day in 2015, thousands of runners in our half marathon, 5K and relay races ran through the gorgeous US Berkeley Campus – Cal territory. To make this special stretch of the course even more exciting, we partnered with UC Berkeley to deliver runners the Cal Challenge in 2015.

Starting as runners enter Cal Campus and ending as they exit campus, the 1-mile Cal Challenge segment of the race is both challenging and beautiful.  This 1-mile stretch is a fast, downhill segment of the race: a great opportunity to pick up some speed and challenge your fellow BHM runners.

The “Cal Challenge” segment challenge offered runners a new way to compete on race day. All runners who raced this segment of the course were tracked by their official chip time, and the male and female runners who completed this segment the fastest received special Cal Challenge awards, once official times are verified, at the finish line festival.
