Arrival & FREE Parking

Please arrive through one of the two entrances on Portola Parkway. Upon arrival, you will be directed to available FREE parking. We recommend arriving 45 minutes early to allow for registration, packet pick-up, warm-up, and stretching.


On Friday, June 10, we will have a pre-registration period for anyone who registered in advance, or who would like to register from 2-6 p.m. in Tent 3. You will pick-up everything you need for Race Day. On Race Day, you will not need to check-in at the registration tables.

Registration & Check-In

If you haven’t pre-registered, head to Tent 3 to register and/or pick up everything you need for the race, including your race bib, safety pins, timing chip, T-shirt and goodie bag. Upon registration, listen to the PA announcements for your starting times.

Race Details

For the 10K, there will be three aid/water stations. The 5K will have two aid stations. At the finish line, turn in your timing chip and replenish yourself with Gatorade, water, oranges and bananas, provided by Trader Joe’s.

Noteworthy: Get Dunked & Post-Race Snacks

Get your body fat accurately measured using Hydrostatic Body Fat Test which immurses you under water. This is a great way to measure your current body fat. Bring a towel, swim suit and $20. Thanks to Silver Sponsor, 12 Week Fitness Challenge and the Fitness Wave for bringing the dunk tank!

Thank you Trader Joes for providing participants with post-race snacks like oranges and bananas!
