The 10k is an out and back on the Hacienda Trail to Mine Hill Trail. The turnaround is at the Hacienda park entrance. The course is hard with steep up and down hills and is all exposed. There will be an aid station at the turn around. The half marathon is a single loop starting on New Almaden Trail to the Mine Hill Trail then returning on the Randol Trail. The course is hilly going out on mostly single track with some shade but the return on Randol Trail with gradual hills on a fire road and finishing on the Virlo Norton Trail loop. The whole loop has good footing with a few exceptions. Aid stations will be positioned about every 3 miles and at the second aid station there is a portable restroom. The marathon is two loops of the half marathon course. The race is in July so I expect the temperature to be in the 90’s. Please carry water accordingly.
The fine print
