Parking and Logistics  

Race check-in, sponsor and race headquarter booths, first aid and food/water are on the infield of the Baylands Athletic Center, located at the end of Geng Rd.

We recommend arriving at least an hour before your event. Police and volunteers will direct you to parking in nearby business lots off Embarcadero Rd. and E. Bayshore Rd. Please do not park in the Stanford Eye Clinic lot.

Limited checking of small personal bags & backpacks is available.

Dogs are permitted on the 5K walk but not on the runs, where the terrain and darkness make it too dangerous to have them. No retractable leashes. Bring your own clean-up bag. Jogging strollers welcome on the 5k walk or at the back of either run.

Headlamps are highly recommended for all runs.


Results  

Race results will be available on computer monitors at the Baylands Athletic Center beginning at approximately 9:30 p.m., and posted online at PaloAltoOnline.com soon after. 

Medals for first, second and third place finishers in each division will be handed out between 9:30 and 10 p.m., or may be picked up during regular business hours after the race at the Palo Alto Weekly, 450 Cambridge Ave., Palo Alto.
