Baylands is trying an experiment: We’re organizing an informal and fun race series for 2020. The goal is to provide an outlet for anyone interested in going to running and walking events while building camaraderie. This is intended to be non-competitive with participants encouraging each other to reach their individual goals and celebrating them when they do. One can participate in as many of the race series events as one would like to do so. All are welcome.
Toward that goal, we included four trial runs that will happen during the Saturday runs at the Palo Alto Baylands. This is an opportunity for participants interested in improving their time over a similar course have the opportunity to do so.
