Palo Alto Run Club is a diverse running group with members ranging from casual joggers to competitive athletes. We have weekly runs in Palo Alto and on Stanford campus, Saturday runs at Sawyer Camp Trail in San Mateo, and monthly trail runs around the bay area.
Our runs typically have 12-30 participants. Everyone runs their own pace and pace groups form naturally. Paces usually range from 6 mins/mile (3:43/km) to 10 mins/mile (6:12/km).
New members are always welcome. Feel free to try a run or two before you join, but please bring a signed waiver form if you are not yet a member. This is an adult running group and minors (under 18) must be accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian.
PARC was formed in 1986 by John Bird and Jeff Wildfogel. It is a Road Runners' Clubs of America (RRCA) club and has grown to about 200 members, of which 45% joined within the last year.
