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.

In August, we will experience another beautiful local redwood preserve, located on the western slopes of the Santa Cruz Mountains overlooking Half Moon Bay. The park features towering redwoods, active creeks, and plentiful ferns, on a mostly-shaded course. Details can be found here.

Portola Redwoods State Park Trail Run July 1

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.

Terrific weather expected for Sunday's trail run on Windy Hill

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.

New PARC Shirts

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? …

Sunday (1/8) - PARC's Monthly Trail Run

PARC's traditional first trail run of the year, in the Santa Cruz Mountains above Saratoga, features spectacular views to the ocean from a surprisingly exposed cliff face as well as many miles of tree sheltered soft forest trail. In most years the waterfall offers a pause early in the run - will it be flowing this year? We have maps to guide an intermediate 6.5-mile route and a slightly more challenging 9.2-mile route -- both routes are quite beautiful.

See the Monthly Trail Run…

Monthly Trail Run - This Sunday December 4th - Wunderlich Park and Buck's!!

I've just updated the details for this Sunday's trail run. This month, instead of a runner's potluck, we will meet at Buck's after the run. Both Buck's and Wunderlich are in nearby Woodside. To help have us together at the same time at Buck's we are staggering the start times. The long run will start at 8:30 (gather at 8:20) and the shorter intermediate run will start at 9:10 (gather at 9:00). Hopefully these split start times will result in both groups finishing at about the same time.…
