2nd Annual BAYLANDS 8k DOUBLE RUN/WALK
Run in the Palo Alto Bayland Open Space starting and finishing at the Baylands Athletic Center. The Double 8K Run/Walk is a two-stage trail and road run (5K+halftime+3K). This is a flat very fast course. Half of the 5k course is on trails the second half on roads. The 3k is all on roads.
The Palo Alto 5k Run/Walk is being held on the same course as the first leg of the Double. This is your chance to enjoy the atmosphere of a Double but only run or walk the 5k.
The 1,940-acre Baylands Preserve is one of the largest tracts of undisturbed marshland remaining in the San Francisco Bay. Miles of multi-use trails provide access to a unique mixture of tidal and fresh water habitats. The preserve has a substantial resident population of birds as well as being a major migratory stopover on the Pacific Flyway. Many consider this area to be one of the best bird watching areas on the west coast.
This exciting course is not suited for strollers.
