Halfmoon Bay roads
Challenge yourself! This is not a “virtual race” but a time trial, on a specific course. You only need a simple chrono watch – the course is accurate. Entry is FREE!
Run the 5k one or more times between December 5th and 13th, then submit your best time, to be entered into a random draw for a pair of Brooks Ghost running shoes!
Here is an interactive course map and written directions. We will try to keep the non permanent markings on the road for the entire time but if there is heavy rain you may have to bring the map with you for directions. Speedsters may want to do a pre-run warm up as this course has a few corners that could easily have you turned around.
After completing the course, submit your time to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will only use times emailed to that address, for the draw.
Both the shoe winner and results will be posted on this site.
