The Palo Alto Run Club participates in, supports, and produces both non-competitive and competitive group running events in the Palo Alto Area and nearby communities. Runners of all ages, abilities, and ambitions are invited to join the club and participate in our running and social activities.
Our weekly and monthly runs are non-competitive with a wide range of runners joining in. Our scheduled group runs vary in length from just under 5 miles to 12 or more miles. The middle of the pack runs at about an 8-minute per mile pace, but there's a large range. You can almost always find someone to run with.
Members under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (also members) during all Palo Alto Run Club activities.
