Club Mission:

The Quicksilver Running Club of San Jose California, also known as QRC, was established to promote physical well-being and friendships through running.

Additionally, it has a purpose that reaches beyond the club, into our community, to promote healthy kids through trail running, and trail advocacy by expanding the accessibility of trails.

Coach Marc Stepping Up to be the MUT Race Team Captain

You may know Coach Marc as one of the coaches from our very successful Youth Running program. Well Marc has now volunteered to be the Team Captain for the QRC MUT (Mountain/Ultra/Trail) Race Team. You can read Coach Marc’s first update about the MUT Race Team here. If you're interested in competing with the team, then please contact Coach Marc. If you're already part of the team, then we thank you, and ask that you maybe try to recruit a friend who isn't yet! Just remember, there's strength (and fun) in numbers!

Thank you to all who came out this year to help maintain the New Almaden Trail. A lot of smiles, a few doughnuts and many stories were shared. For 2021 that's a wrap!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  - Jim
