Before you Check In…

To save yourself some time at check-in, read the What Else You Should Know Before You Sign Up…  section. If you’re participating with a minor make sure to download, print out and complete any forms you might need in advance.

Regular (Morning of Event) Check-In

For all events, we ask that you plan to arrive at least 30 minutes before your designated start time. This ensures that you have enough time to check in, grab some snacks, and coordinate with your friends, so that you’re relaxed and ready to start on time.

All TRAIL RUNS will start and finish at San Pedro Valley County Park in Pacifica.

FREE PARKING will be available at St. Peter’s Parish, 700 Oddstad Blvd, right next to the San Pedro Valley County Park gate. From there, you’ll be directed by event volunteers to the check-in area, near the park entrance. Parking is also permitted along the residential streets adjacent to the park, unless otherwise indicated.

Paid parking is available inside San Pedro Valley County Park, but spaces are limited. To park there, you’ll be charged a vehicle entry fee of $6.00, which goes to the benefit of San Mateo County Parks.

Due to the popularity of the event and limited number of parking spaces, we ask participants to carpool if possible. If you park in a residential area outside of the park, we ask you to please be mindful of neighboring homes and businesses, and park only in the designated areas.
