What we're about

Hey you! Thanks for checking out our fun little running group. We were originally known as "Peninsula Trail Running," but have recently changed to "Peninsula-South Bay-&-More! Trail Running" to be more inclusive! We are comprised of runners from all over the bay area, and even have members who live overseas. We are a pretty diverse group of runners of varying distance preferences and speeds: from 3-mile beginning trail runners to experienced ultramarathoners. Some of us race a few times a year, while most of us hardly race at all. We have regular members in their early 20s and some in their late 50s. A good number of us are in our late 30s-early 40s. Some of our runs are super chill, while some are pretty intense. We're mostly a social run group full of people who love nature, talking, and doing lots of eating. We explore trails all over the Bay Area, but here's our current typical schedule:  Wednesday evenings (Wunderlich Park in Woodside during Spring/Summer, Thursday evenings (at Fremont Older in Cupertino in the Spring/Summer), and some sort of longer run during the weekends year around. If any of the above sounds interesting to you, feel free to come on out to a run. 

Looking forward to see you on a trail run soon!

Super Fun Wednesday Trail Run!

Triangle Park

Come join Peninsula Trail Runners for an ~4.5-6 mile run through local trails.

The run has hilly sections so not a beginner run, but we are a mixed-pace and welcoming group, so just come out and give it a shot.

Pace: Mixed, we will typically regroup throughout.

It happens in darkness so please bring headlamps and/or a flashlight!

The run will happen regardless of how many people have clicked "attend" here, as we typically RSVP off Meetup. Meet at Triangle Park, a small grassy area near Robert's Market right off of Portola Rd and Alpine Rd intersection at 5:45pm, run begins at 6pm and is typically followed by beers at Alpine Inn.

Chuck will be leading this run.

Super Fun Los Altos Hills Thursday Night Trail Run!

Westwind Community Barn

(BEFORE RSVPing, please be sure to read our COVID policy below.)
Join us for a COVID-safe, super fun Thursday evening trail run through the Los Altos Pathways Trails! Bring a headlamp. Finally, after 6 weeks, my leg has finally healed enough to lead this moderately easy 5.5 mile trail trek from the top of Westwind Barn down to the bottom of Moody Road and around to the Artemis Ginston Trail, with our only major hill being less than 1/4 mile up the "Climb of Courage." Weather permitting, we'll have a gorgeous moonlight sky full of stars and a skyline view of Silicon Valley.

We all start at the Westwind Community Barn parking lot which is off of Altamont. The parking is off the road and may be a little hard to find in the dark, so please give yourself time to find us. Don't worry about speed. From here, we have a nice downhill jaunt through the Packard Trail and eventually make our way to the bottom of Moody Rd. We'll follow the Los Altos Pathways trail along Moody Rd until we connect to the Artemis Ginzton Trail which will take us to the "Climb of Courage." After a brief detour in the neighborhood we'll connect up with the Pathways Trail alongside Altamont which will take us back to our cars.
