PARC's Monthly Trail Run heads to Castle Rock State Park this Saturday for runs of 6.5 or 9.2 miles on the high divide above Saratoga. The beginning of the route features a really cool (and somewhat rocky) trail along the top of the ridge's Western escarpment - the result: we run for miles with incredible vistas soaring over Big Basin and out to the Pacific and Monterey. The run back, on the Eastside of the…Continue

Mark your calendars for Sunday 2/10 when we will do a new route at Huddart County Park, featuring the trails of the neighboring Phleger Estate, part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Association. The Phleger Miramonte Trail starts off of Huddart's Richard's Road Trail, running along side the scenic West Union Creek and then heading up to Skyline Boulevard on the Lonely Trail -- you will feel like you are off in a remote world of your own! We will re-enter Huddart for a return run…Continue

All - I'm looking for a relatively simple GPS running watch to replace my old Polar, which isn't GPS. Of course, I want a heart rate monitor. On top of that, I'd like it to provide an audible signal for a pre-set distance - i.e. ideally, it would 'beep' every 400 or 800 meters, and display the time of my last 400 or 800 split. Can anyone recommend a fairly simple watch that does these things? Thanks!
In November, the Monthly Trail Run takes advantage of the near perfect weather forecast for this run up to the top of Black Mountain featuring 360-degree panoramic views stretching from the bay out to the ocean. The run then returns via the beautiful (and shady) Stevens Creek Nature Trail. All the details can be found here.

On Sunday July 1, the Monthly Trail Run ventures deep into the Santa Cruz Mountains directly over the hill from Palo Alto. It's very likely that water will still be flowing in the creeks. This is a mostly-shaded course with a waterfall, a pond and a historic cabin site. This is a beautiful park, and well-worth the slightly longer drive. For details click here.

This Sunday, March 4, 2012, the PARC's Monthly Trail run heads to nearby Windy Hill and the weather forecast for Sunday is exceptional. This run is close to Palo Alto and Windy Hill is PARC's favorite Monthly Trail Run route.

We are planning to coordinate another PARC running shirt order this year. We'll proudly display our NEW LOGO on the shirts! We want a running shirt that will stand out in a crowd, so others will be easily able to spot PARC runners in a crowd (i.e. no white tops!). One option is a bright green top. What do you think of this shirt in lime green with a black logo? …Continue
