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.
