Phleger Estate Trail Run 

11 Km, 19 Km, 37 Km, & 50 Km

Run-day Instructions



The Phleger Estate Trail Run will be held on Saturday, December 3rd.  The 50 Km starts at 8:30 a.m.  All other events start at 9:00 a.m.


The park opens at 8:00 a.m. Please arrive 30 minutes before the start of your event.  To reach the Huddart County Park entrance, please click on this Map for driving directions.   The park entrance fee is $5 per vehicle.  No dogs allowed in the park.  The start/finish will be located at the Werder Shelter


Weather:  Woodside/Redwood City



Please click on Hotels, Motels & Camping for a partial listing of places to stay.



The course will be marked with ribbon approximately every 200 meters and color coded as follows:

11 Km - Green

19 Km - Pink

37 Km - Pink/Blue/Pink

50 Km - Pink/Blue/Orange/Blue/Pink

For the 50 Km event, there is an 8 hour time limit and a 2 hour 50 minute cut-off (11:20 a.m.) at the Skyline Blvd. aid station (19 Km).  Runners who don't make the cut-off will turnaround at the Skyline Blvd. aid station and complete the 37 Km course.


The most important course marking is the blue-striped ribbonIt indicates a turn at an intersection.  There will be at least two blue-striped ribbons before a turn in the course.  The blue-striped ribbons will be placed before and on the same side as the required turn.  As you approach an intersection, look for any blue-striped ribbons before the turn.  Waiting until you're in the intersection to determine the correct direction may be confusing and you may go the wrong way.  After you complete the turn, there will be green, pink, blue, or orange ribbons indicating the correct route.


If you don't see your respective ribbon for 3-4 minutes, you are off course.  If you get off course, you should retrace your path until you find where you left the course and then continue along the marked course.


Many of the parks in California have poison oak and ticks.  We recommend washing with Tecnu and checking for ticks immediately after your trail run.


No dogs allowed on the course.
