Vortex Powered Paragliding is proud to participate in the Vallejo Waterfront Weekend opening ceremonies.  Our mission at Vortex Powered Paragliding is to offer a wide variety of Powered Paramotor training classes, instruction and tandem discovery flights on one of our powered paramotors.  Come watch the amazing powered paragliding show, also known as paramotoring or PPG, which is a form of ultralight aviation where the pilot wears a motor on their back (a paramotor) providing enough thrust to take off using a paraglider. It can be launched in still air, and on level ground, by the pilot alone — no assistance is required.

Our Half Marathon course will take you along the historic naval yard on the east side of the island, to the highest point of Mare Island for beautiful views of the Bay, Mt. Diablo, and Mt. Tamalpais. It will then run you down by the Old Admiral housing and out to the Mare Island portion of the San Pablo Bay trail on the western side of the island. The 10K will take you by the Old Admiral housing and the San Pablo Bay Trail before heading to the finish. The 5K race will run by the Old Admiral housing before heading to the finish. All courses are still going through the approval process and some tweaks may be made, but the overall feel for the race should not alter too much. Parts of the run through the San Pablo Bay Trail are unpaved.
