Calero has everything you would expect from a trail run in Santa Clara. The 9k is run on a fire road while the other distances are split about 60% fire road, 40% single track. Most of the run is on the exposed grassland hills though there are still miles of California Oak woodlands. There are beautiful views of the valley from Bald Peaks Trail. This is a hilly course and may be one of the toughest you've ever run. Aid stations will be about 3 miles apart and you will find all of your favorite foods to get you to the finish. Please carry water as needed. Calero Park is part of Santa Clara County Parks.
The fine print
The race starts and finishes at Calero Park in South San Jose. There will be an emergency response team present in the event of an injury. Aid stations every 3 to 3.5 miles but please carry water if needed. The race will be run rain or shine and in the event of a race cancellation, your entry fee will be applied to the rescheduled race. There will be no refunds. You must register my March 14th to get a tee shirt. There is plenty of free parking. Go to the event website for more details.
