West Coast Trail runs is a new trail running series located in San Jose. My goal is to encourage and inspire runners with each race. So, whether you're running a 50K in nine hours or under five, we strive to ensure everyone makes it to the finish line. At the end, we hope that you're left with something enjoyable and fulfilling, after all, isn't that what trail running is about? I promise that you will get the support from our team and even from your fellow competitors. I hope you enjoy the experience you are about to sign up for and remember to get out and play.
The course travels through the hills just above Coyote Lake. It features rolling hills through the dried grasses of the Santa Clara Valley. The Half Marathon is a single loop while the Marathon is two of the same loop. The 10k is a smaller loop along parts of the Half Marathon loop. The half and full marathon have about 3 miles of single track and 10 miles of well groomed fire roads.
