Course Description
Calero Reservoir has everything you would expect from a trail run in Santa Clara. The 9k is run on a fire road while the other distances are split about 60% fire road, 40% single track. Most of the run is on the exposed grassland hills though there are still miles of California Oak woodlands. There are beautiful views of the valley from Bald Peaks Trail. This is a hilly course and may be one of the toughest you've ever run. Aid stations will be positioned about every 3 to 4 miles. Please carry water accordingly.

Tee Shirts/ Post Race/ Awards
As usual all runner that register before November 9th. 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 as well awards for top 3 male and female finishers in each distance.

The Fine Print
The race starts and finishes at Calero Reservoir County Park in South San Jose. There will be an emergency response team present in the event of an injury.  Aid stations every 3 to 3.5 miles but please carry water as needed.  The race will be run rain or shine unless cancelled by park rangers. The race will then be rescheduled your entry fee will be applied to the rescheduled race.  There will be no refunds or transfers to another race.  There is plenty of free parking.  Follow and Like us on Facebook.
