Running with mountain lions since 1983

Race Rules & Etiquette

  1. Race numbers must be worn on the front so they are visible to checkpoint personnel.

  2. Race numbers cannot be transferred to another runner.

  3. No pacers/bandits are allowed.

  4. The following aid station cut offs will be applied for the Half Marathon:

    • Hacienda - 10:00 am

    • Capehorn Pass - 12:00 pm

    • Prospect #3 - 1:00 pm

    • Finish Line - 2:30 pm

  5. No ties will be allowed for awards.

  6. If you wish to drop out of the race, and are unable to finish the course, GO TO THE SCORING TABLE AT THE FINISH LINE to let us know you have dropped.  It is your responsibility to let us know at the finish line that you have dropped. If we call search and rescue because we don’t know where you are, you will likely get a very large bill from the County for the search.


Weather and Hazards:

Normal starting temperatures are 45-60F; afternoon temperatures can be anywhere from the 60-90F.  YOU SHOULD CARRY AT LEAST ONE WATER BOTTLE — the weather is often warm and it can be a long time between aid stations if you are moving slowly and are out of water. While the temps are normally moderate, it can feel very warm when it gets into the mid-70s due to trail exposure. Rain is possible, though not likely. Although we work very hard to keep the trail free of poison oak and tall grass, there is poison oak along the course. Be on the alert for rattlesnakes and ticks.


Quicksilver Running Club of San Jose is a 501(c) (4) non­profit tax exempt organization
