This was the inaugural Silicon Valley Food Truck 5K. It was well organized and the festival afterwards was quite large with food trucks, music and vendors. The course was mostly flat along the Guadalupe river trail. The only problem was the afternoon start at 3:00pm – it was HOT in San Jose today. The heat made this race a bit of a struggle for me. If they repeat this event next year, I hope it’s a morning start. Other than that – Represent Running put on a nice event as they always do. I’m looking forward to the 10K tomorrow with the morning start :-).

This local race takes you from the SCU campus to Avaya Stadium and back. Scenery not the best, but the race is well managed and there is lots of food at the end of the race. I always appreciate a race close to home, so I am a fan of this one and will run again in the future.

This is a fun race starting at the SAP Center downtown, winding through the Rose Garden (ish) area and finishing at Santana Row. The race is well organized and supports the Pat Tillman foundation which is the biggest reason I participate.

I wanted to run this race because of the ocean side course. It was stunning – perfect weather and my best running buddy (my daughter) made for a standout race. Course was flat, it was not too crowded, and the cute surfboard medal doubles as a bottle opener :-).

This is one of my favorite courses. The views are beautiful and the set up is well organized. It’s easy to park close by either on the street or in one of the lots for the marina.

My favorite thing about this run was the views. Also very organized with buses, bag check, etc. The only thing that I didn’t like was the bottleneck at the start of the race – the narrow wooden paths meant I had to walk at the beginning for awhile which was a bummer for my time. Fun race anyway with great weather.

This race is the same course as Brazen’s Bay Breeze race that takes place in February. It’s a flat course with nice bay views. Start is at the park adjacent to the San Leandro Marina and the course is out and back mostly along the water. This is a well organized race with lots of snacks post-race. Easy parking on the street or in lots by the marina.

This race supports families of fallen officers. All bay area runners should consider participating in this race – it’s family friendly and they have a police helicoptor land at the end, and mounted police on their horses. It’s really fun and different. The course through the park is nice, mostly trail. I actually got an age group win here which was fun :-).

This course is actually a 6K since they expanded it to run to Avaya stadium. It starts at the SCU campus which is always lovely (biased bronco opinion maybe) and runs on city streets out to and through Avaya stadium which is different and kind of fun with some photo ops if you want to stop.
