Start of the Race

San Jose, CA 95120


Directions to the Start

Find your way to Hwy. 85 and exit at Almaden Expressway. Go south on Almaden Expressway to O'grady/ Almaden Road. Turn Right on Almaden Road. Pass Mockingbird Lane (where the race will finish) and drive another 2+ miles through a quiet residential neighborhood to the Hacienda Entrance to Quicksilver Park. The entrance will be on your right.


While we consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have increased our permit size to allow more runners, we now strongly encourage you to carpool to the event! Please proceed through the first small lot (reserved race day for regular park users) into the large dirt lot and follow the instructions of the parking attendants. They’ll be wearing ultra-reflective vests and holding flags – you can’t miss them (but please don’t hit them)! If needed, overflow parking will be directed to Casa Grande (New Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum) half a mile back. There will be shuttles to get you to the start but please allow enough time. Parking is a sensitive subject with the county park officials that issue our permit. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated!

Finish of the Race and Mockingbird Aid Station (Mile 44.5 – 100k, Mile 12.8 – 50k)

Almaden Quicksilver County Park

Mockingbird Hill Lane Entrance

18839 Mockingbird Hill Lane

San Jose, CA 95120


Directions to the Finish

From Highway 85: take the Almaden Expressway exit south 4.5 miles to Almaden Road. Turn right on Almaden Rd. and proceed .5 miles to Mockingbird Hill Lane. Turn right on Mockingbird Hill Lane and continue 0.4 miles. The parking lot will be on your left. The lot is not nearly large enough to accommodate everyone, so you might want to park in the residential neighborhood just off of Mockingbird Hill Lane.

Please keep in mind that we will have a shuttle bus to transport you from the finish back to your car. PLEASE DO NOT PARK ON MOCKINGBIRD HILL LANE BETWEEN THE LAST HOUSE AND THE PARKING LOT. There will be signs to remind/warn you. There is lots of parking in the neighborhood streets, about a quarter mile walk from the finish line festivities. Tickets have been issued in recent years, bumming everybody (residents, rangers, race officials, regular park users) out to the max. Please park appropriately. It will be worth the walk to relax while you party.
