[Willow Glen-Los Gatos Creek Trail] Early Morning Run

  • This location is shown only to members

  • Early morning start for folks who want to get their run in before work.

    Jump start your day with some dedicated and friendly runners!

    We will start at the parking lot of Blackford Elementary School and get on the Los Gatos Creek trail running to Campbell towards Los Gatos.

    We make a couple of stops for water and take a little walk break in the middle.

    It's an easy straight trail so you can't get lost.

    The run will be 6 miles, but one can run further or less as desired.

    We have a special procedure for these early morning runs. It is meant to help insure that no one drags themselves out of bed only to be left alone to run. (for safety reasons too)

    Goes as follows:

    Please RSVP day/night before. (if you don't the meetup will likely be cancelled or I will forget to check back in the morning)

    Confirm that you are joining the run no later than 5:10 AM. Two ways to confirm:

    meetup in the morning, or change your rsvp.

    text me in the morning to confirm. [masked]-1645.

    If you do not confirm by one of those two means, then I will expect that you will not be joining and others can adjust their plans accordingly.

    It's very rewarding to be finishing your run before the day gets going. It's a bit tough to get used to at first, but soon you may find yourself looking forward to it. It makes for a great day, so come out and join us!

    Dear Runner Buddies..last year we pooled together to adopt a needy San Jose family to support for the holidays. I will help coordinate this again and get you a tax receipt if you would like to participate. There is, of course, no obligation it just felt nice to give something back to the community together last year. (further increasing the happy hormones)

    The Commitment: If you adopt a family, our expectation would be to provide:
    • A bag of toiletries / household supplies
    • A bag of holiday treats
    • A gift card or cards(s) to the value of a minimum of $100
    (Extra items like new blankets, pillows, socks, gloves, sweatshirt/hoodie are usually very welcome too. It is up to your group or family whether to go beyond the basics, if you are able, and provide some personal gifts for the target student and family)


    Before 12/16.

    Please let me know if you are interested.

    Happy Holidays!
