Virtual races are just like traditional races with a shirt, community and fun, but you can run, walk or hike your race wherever you want with whoever you want. Even on a treadmill! Racers report their time online.
T-shirts can be shipped to you for a small fee, or free pick-up at the District Office can be arranged by calling 510-881-6700 or emailing info@HaywardRec.org
Both On-site and Anywhere courses, for both the 5K or 10K cost $20.00.
The beauty of virtual racing is the flexibility to do what works best for you. You can run anytime between September 1-30th.
Yes. Both the 5K and 10K courses are certified by U.S. Track and Field. The courses are measured by the shortest possible distance which may cause a discrepancy if you measure your own distance with GPS.

Yes. You can listen to music, but please note that bicyclists, hikers, and emergency vehicles may be sharing the trail so be aware of your surroundings.
Dogs are not allowed on the trail or at the center. This is a park rule set for the protection of the many wild animals that live here.
Yes, you can run with a stroller. The trail is gravel and packed dirt, so make sure the wheels on the stroller can run over it smoothly. Do not give children inside a stroller a race bib because the timing chip would track their finish time.
You can choose to receive your results via text or email as you cross the finish line. They will also be posted online at www.runsignup.com.
While the Interpretive Center is currently closed to visitors, the trails are open for people to recreate responsibly.
