Welcome to the 30th running of the Woodside Trail Run in Huddart and Wunderlich Parks. This classic Pacific Coast Trail Runs event is known for the best trails in the bay area. The Start and Finish Line are at Huddart Park off HWY 280 in San Mateo County and follows the trails through Kings Mountain, Bear Gulch for those of you running the 35K or 50K you will experience Wunderlich Park. The 17K and 10K distance will stay in Huddart park. You will enjoy plenty of single-track trails under the canopy of towering redwoods and other local growth. This is a magical trail run on soft dirt trails, along side lush ferns and a green landscape leaving you breathless with the desire to return soon after your finish.

Refunds, Transfers, Race Credit Policies

Refunds, Transfers, Race Credit Policies
If you are unable to participate in the event you paid for and miss the 45 or 14 day window because you are unable to run due to injury or under training, and volunteer at the intended event or another event within 30 days of your event, then we will apply 100% race credit for a future PCTR event. You will also receive additional race credits for the hours you volunteered.


Refunds & Transfers

Entry fees associated with Pacific Coast Trail Run Events are non-refundable and non-transferable. The amount of time and expense that goes into a PCTR event is high. Contracts, permit fees, awards, shirts, and all things associated with your event happen a long time before your race day. Surely, if many of you wanted a refund because you got injured, become sick, or have to attend a family function, then all trail running companies would be out of business. We also do not transfer entries for numerous reasons. We do, and will provide race credits for a future PCTR event (less registration fees) shall something come up that prevents you from attending the event you paid for.


Race Credits

For 100% race credit towards another PCTR event, you must notify us 45 days before your event. For 50% race credit, you must notify PCTR prior to 14 days before your event. For 25% race credit, you must notify PCTR prior to 72 hours remaining before your event. Your race credits will be valid for one year from the time you earned them.



Volunteer Policy

- Earn $10 in PCTR Race Credits for every hour worked. (For example: 4 hrs = $40; 3.5 hrs = $35, etc.)

- Volunteer 8+ hour shift and earn $40 bonus credits for event.

- Earn 2X Credits for bad weather volunteering in rain.

- Earn 2X Credits from 8pm to 6am. (Headlands & Night Sweats Only)

- Receive the coveted PCTR "Go Run a Trail!" shirt. *Must volunteer a minimum of 5 hours to get the shirt. If you already have too many of these shirts and want a race shirt instead, then come by the finish line tent to see if we have any more in your size.

- You will not earn credits for volunteering unless you sign up, email us at

Cup-Free Racing

Effective in January,  2018, Pacific Coast Trail Runs is following the lead of other trail races by taking steps to "green" our events. We recommend that all participants carry hydration devices on them during the race. We will sell HydraPouch portable cup with Universal carry clip – hooks easily to shorts, tights, number belts, hydration belts, etc. We will also have a few for purchase for $10 the day of the event.

Post Race food TBD
We take great pride in knowing that when you finish a PCTR trail run, it is of the highest importance that you have a meal and tasty beverage to reward your finish. All entrants receive a "post-race meal ticket" to get the nutrients your body needs right after you finish. You will have the option during registration to purchase additional meal tickets. Our post-race BBQ chefs are in tune with incredible creations to meet all palates and will always provide a vegetarian option. We have served amazing tacos, incredible fajitas, delicious sliders, killer cowboy/cowgirl BBQ treats, and more. In the cold months, and night races, you will always be able to enjoy our super tasty soup creations. So bring a chair, a friend, and relax a bit with us.
