Santa Teresa County Park King Richard Annual 5K Trail Run : 2015

2015 Trail Run #1
2015 Race #1
Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Up at 6am as we had to be out the door at 7:15am to make the drive from Santa Cruz to the race in the hills around San Jose on time, which was very much a small local event. (King Richard turned out to be the organizer’s father.) Basically the 5K course was straight up a steep hill…then straight back down on a hard trail in clear weather. Cold first thing in the morning, but it started to heat up during the race so I quickly worked out I had overdressed. Coming out of the Hokkaido winter, I hadn’t done that much running, let alone trail running, so it was hard work on the climb. Fun though, and nice to run somewhere different. Great views, too.
