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 single track and 10 miles of well groomed fire roads.
The race will go on rain or shine. I do expect it to be colder than normal so dress accordingly.
10k Starts at 8:30am
Half Marathon Starts @8:00am
Marathon Starts @ 8:00am
Day of race registration opens at 7:00am.
Although online registration is closed you can still register on day of race beginning at 7:00am however there may not be a tee shirt or finishers medal for you. I hope to see you there.
What are we doing this for?
The entry fee is only $15. That’s because West Coast Trail Runs has decided to support the Second Harvest Food Bank. We will pay the remaining expenses and only 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 500 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 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.
What You Get
As usual all runner that register before November 24th. will receive a great tech tee. All runners will be able to enjoy a post race beer as well as the food you come to expect from a trail race. There will be finishers medals given for all distances.
