Every Wednesday, PARC holds a casual run of about 5 miles (sometimes a bit longer) or walk of about an hour starting at the Lucie Stern Community Center in Palo Alto.

NOTE: We are currently meeting on Wednesday evenings at nearby Rinconada Park (777 Embarcadero Rd, Palo Alto, CA)

The route is rotated among several favorites. For the route schedule see the PARC Activity Calendar on our Home Page.

About 6:15pm, a brief club meeting is held during which new members are welcomed, race results are shared, and future races and club activities are announced. The run starts immediately following the announcements. PLEASE NOTE: The walk will start at 6:05 pm before the announcements. A similar route to the run will be followed.

After the Run

On most Wednesdays, club members gather after the run or walk for a meal or drinks.

For more information about the Wednesday Night Run or Walk, contact the run coordinator, Jose Pizano: (

New Runners & Walkers

PARC wants to encourage all beginning runners and walkers and while we would never turn away anyone who wants to run or walk with us, we do suggest that anyone who is new to running or walking with the club should be able to run continuously for a half hour at around a 12 min/mile pace or walk up to 45 minutes. If you're not quite at that level yet, we recommend running at the 6pm Thurs. night run hosted by the Palo Alto Lulumenon store @ 432 Univerisity Ave. which is at a much more social pace. Note: PARC does not organize the Lululemon run, please contact them for more accurate information.
