September 22nd, 2018 - Vasona Lake County Park - Los Gatos, CA

The 2018 Los Gatos Creek Trail Run will be on Saturday September 22nd. This year we will feature a Marathon, Half Marathon, and 10K. All three distances will start and finish in Vasona Lake County Park in Los Gatos, CA. This a beautiful park that has all sorts of activities for your entertainment pleasure, including a train ride on the Billy Jones Wildcat Rail Road. The races will be run or walked on the Los Gatos Creek Trail heading east towards Campbell. Each distance will have a turn around point creating true "out and back" courses. The marathon will run the half marathon course twice. You can choose the bike pathway/asphalt or the dirt shoulder (part of the trail system) if that is what you prefer.
