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.

Trail Work Day

Thanks to the 13 volunteers who participated in our trail work day on Saturday April 3rd. We had fun trimming the New Almaden Trail in preparation for our 100K/50K race planned for May 8th (fingers crossed) 

The next trail work day will be on Saturday May 1st 8:00am-12:00pm. We will meet at the Webb Canyon trailhead.

You will want to bring mask, hand sanitizer, water, food, gloves, and clothing to protect yourself from ticks and poison oak. Tools will be provided but feel free to bring your favorite pick axe, shovel, or loppers. Please email Jim Yates at jyates1006@gmail.com if you are planning on being a part of the trail work team. We will follow our COVID-19 protocol.

Stay safe!
