El Cerrito Vertical Challenge

Posted on February 24, 2016 at 9:13 AM by Suzanne Iarla

Staff is working with Scena Performance on the possibility of hosting a Vertical Challenge in the Hillside Natural Area on July 16, 2016. As envisioned, this would be a 5K Run/Family Fun Hike. All levels of hiking would be welcome. A run of some type has often been mentioned by residents as something that should occur in El Cerrito one day. The Park and Recreation Commission voted to endorse hosting the Vertical Challenge on January 27, 2016. Both City staff and Scena Performance have also been in contact with the El Cerrito Trail Trekkers who may be a beneficiary of part of the proceeds from the event and will help ensure minimum damage to the Hillside Natural Area.

Scena Performance still needs to submit a security and traffic plan to the Police Department and encroachment permits to Public Works Department in order for the event to become officially sanctioned. Brian Wyatt, the lead staff member from Scena Performance is an El Cerrito Resident. For more information on Scena Performance, please go to http://www.scenaperformance.com.
