Please give yourself enough time to park and warm up for your run. The Half Marathon starts first at 8:00am with the 5k racers shortly after that. Race morning packet pickup/ late registration starts at 7:00AM. To avoid congestion, please pick up your race packet ahead of time at A Runners Mind in Burlingame.

We are asking all runners be off the course in 3 1/2 hours, as we have to honor our permits with local authorities.

Start line -

We ask that you self seed at the start line, meaning that faster people start in the front and slower runners/ walkers start in the back of the pack. Fast runners can run a mile in 5 minutes and should be at the front of the start line.

Jogging strollers -

Though we love your children, we advise some caution when considering use of jogging strollers on this course as the trail will be in use in both directions and is not very wide in all spots. If you decide to bring your child along in a jogging stroller, you will be asked to start in the back of the starting pack, regardless of your running pace in order to insure the safety of other runners.

Dogs are not allowed in Coyote Point Park.

Water/Aid Stations -

There will be water/Gatoraid aid stations approximately every 1 1/2 miles. So at the 1 1/2 mile mark, 3 mile mark, 4 1/2 mile mark and 6 mile mark. Of course, you will hit these again after the turn around. There are also limited public drinking fountains along the course. You may bring your own water bottles, or use the paper cups provided. There will be permanent and portable restrooms at the start/finish area. In order to make this a green and enjoyable event for all, please dispose of any gel wrappers, bottles, or any other garbage you may want to shed yourself of during the race at any of the aid stations throughout to race. Keep in mind, volunteers will need to collect any trash left on the course, please dispose of your items as close to the aid stations as possible.
