What are we doing this for?
The entry fee is only $30. That’s because West Coast Trail Runs has decided to support the Second Harvest Food Bank. All we ask that you use part of the money you were willing to spend on the entry fee to buy and bring non-perishable foods to the event. Our goal is to raise over 2000 pounds of food. You will still receive all the great swag that we have provided in past races including a great tech tee, well supported aid stations and finishers medals. If you don’t want to buy food feel free to make a cash or check donation to Second Harvest Food Bank instead. All donations will be collected on the day of the race. Tell your friends and family and let's make this a great event of giving. Walkers and hikers are welcome in distances up to the half marathon.
The course travels through the hills just above Coyote Lake. It features rolling hills through the dried grasses of the Santa Clara Valley. The Half Marathon is a single loop while the Marathon is two of the same loop. The 10k is a smaller loop along parts of the Half Marathon loop. The half and full marathon have about 3 miles of singletrack and 10 miles of well-groomed fire roads.
Race Medals / Shirts
Finishers medals will be provided to all finishers. Awards for top fale and female finishers in each distance. Custom tech shirts can be purchased at registration for $10.
