Course Description

This year we will be running a new 10k course which a little easier than past years but still very challenging.  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 to 6 miles miles with a portable restroom at the first aid station which is 6 miles out.  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

As usual with West Coast Trail Runs races, the finish line will be stocked with you favorite post race food including a bbq and drinks including beer.  There are finishers medals for all distances as well at awards for the top three men and women in each distance.  You must register on or before July 12th to be guaranteed a tech tee shirt

Local time: 4:00 AM
