You don't want to miss this race!  The Go Green Saint Patrick's Day Run is back again for another great year to celebrate shamrocks and leprechauns and everything Irish in the month of March.  It's our 10th anniversary and we'll actually be running on St. Patrick's Day.

We'll be running at Hellyer Park in San Jose for this year's event, while Vasona gets a facelift. Same race, same distances, same fun! There's a half marathon, a 10K or a 5k.  It's a great course for a flat and fast PR and it's totally paved and shaded from the hot sun.

Start time is at 9:00 am on Sunday morning so you can sleep in a bit.   We'll make a weekend of celebrating the green. In order to provide an amazing experience for all runners, our registration will be capped at 800 participants this year due to the location change and we expect another sell out - so register soon. We will again be offering a great tech tee and finishers medals for all distances. 

Half Marathon start 9:00 am

10K start at 9:10 am

5K start at 9:20 am

All 3 courses will run on the Coyote Creek Trail.  The Half Marathon and 10K will be an out and back along the trail.  The Half Marathon will go to Metcalf Park and the 10K will go to the Creekside Sports Complex area before returning to the park.

Hellyer Park

Hellyer Park and the Coyote Creek Trail offer a beautiful setting for a run.  The entire course is mostly flat and completely paved with tree and creek views can't be matched anywhere in the area. You'll run past meadows and streams on tree lined trails without any street crossings or traffic. 

Celebrate the Green!

Dressing up for the race is entirely optional but it sure is a lot of fun!  It's great to see how creative runners can be.

You can't get lost on this course

This course is pretty straight forward and you'll be guided by some very visible and race specific and color coded course markers from start to finish!
