Co-hosted by Stanford Running Club


Race Information

Course Location:
Crystal Springs Cross Country Course
Belmont, CA

Terrain: An all dirt course. It's easy on the knees and scenery is nice (overlooking a wildlife reserve). The entire course is up and downhill. The view and the elevation changes make it for an always-fun run. No shade, so be prepared for full sun and a hot day. Also, stay on the paths because of the wildlife.

Water might be provided but not guaranteed; plan to bring your own.

The course is located on very sensitive property. There are some uncommon restrictions-- such as no dogs, no bicycles, and no smoking. It is a game refuge and has to be treated as such.

Spikes are not recommended.

Awards: Top 10 individuals in each race
Top 3 teams
