We last had this activity in 2012 when over 50…

Bay to Breakers opportunities ---- Comped Entry & Sub-seeded start, Private Bus

On the fence regarding running B2B, then just do it and do it in comfort and even for free if qualified. Here's the deals.

For many of the past dozen years or so, Marty & I have run with a group of guys several of whom were the originators of the Centipede category. Along with many other oddly fun…

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.
