Harvey West Park, Santa Cruz, CA. Directions


Map  |  Elevations  |  Descriptions

The trails wind through 300 foot tall, 1500 year-old Coastal Redwoods, lush stream canyons, open meadows, pine and oak forests, and high dry chaparral-covered ridges. The views of Monterey Bay are spectacular! (Distances are accurately measured using a Rolatape® surveyor's measuring wheel.)

Aid Stations:

Fully-stocked aid stations every 7 - 11 kilometers. You can expect fresh fruit, salty snacks, assorted candy, boiled potatoes & salt, water, and Clif Shot Electrolyte sports drink. If you would like to be sure that you have Clif product, SaltStick capsules, or any other specific item at the event, you should carry it with you. Additionally, it is highly recommended that runners carry at least 20 oz. of water between aid stations.
