The Palo Alto Run Club participates in, supports, and produces both non-competitive and competitive group running events in the Palo Alto Area and nearby communities. Runners of all ages, abilities, and ambitions are invited to join the club and participate in our running and social activities.
On most Saturday mornings (see activities calendar), starting a little after 8:00 am, a PARC run takes place at Sawyer Camp (map and parking info below).
These group runs focus on marathon training. Most of us run about 12 miles. Some do less. And some club members start as early as 7:00am and complete up to 20 miles.
Our Monday night runs are about 5-6 miles long. We leave from the parking lot of the Stanford track (295 Galvez St, Stanford, CA 94305, USA). Around 6:25 pm, new members are welcomed, we share race results, and we announce future races and club activities. The run starts promptly at 6:30 pm.

On Tuesday evenings, PARC runners meet at on the Stanford Track for interval training. Runners of all abilities are welcome to join in the fun.
Novices, newcomers and runners of all abilities are always welcome. For first-timers, a steady aerobic mileage base of at least 15-20 miles per week is recommended.
***Please arrive in time to be fully warmed up before the 6:30 announcements.***
