On August 17th, we return to one of PARC's most liked trail systems, Wunderlich Park in Woodside. Along with several groves of majestically beautiful Redwoods, all of Wunderlich's trails are well shaded. With well maintained trails, Wunderlich is close to Palo Alto and the intermediate route is shorter than our usual making this month's run a good choice for beginning trail runners.
Instead of our usual runner's pot luck, this month after the run we'll meet for brunch at Buck's in Woodside at 10:30. Runners from Saturday morning's Sawyer Camp group are also encouraged to join us there. So that we all finish our run and are ready to head over to Buck's at about the same time, this month the intermediate run starts a half-hour after the long run.
When Saturday, August 17, 2013. Long run meets at 8:20am for an 8:30am start. Intermediate run meets at 8:50am for a 9:00am start.
Driving together is encouraged, but as Wunderlich is close by, we are not setting up an official car pool for this run.
Where Wunderlich County Park, 4040 Woodside Rd, Woodside. There is no parking fee. More park info can be found here.
How to get to Wunderlich Take 280 North to Woodside Road (Highway 84). Continue West on Woodside Road thru the small business district, past the school, and around the bend to the South. About 3 miles after leaving 280, the park entrance is on the right hand side. Pls be extra cautious when driving thru Woodside as there are a lot of bicycle riders on the roads and Woodside police often strictly enforce traffic laws ...
What A long (about 10.8 miles, 2000 feet vertical) and an intermediate run (about 5.3 miles, 800 feet vertical). This is a remote trail run and each runner must carry at least one water bottle. To avoid having to search for lost runners, we will stay together in groups of approximately the same running abilities and distance interests.
