RACE INFO

San Pedro Valley Park is nestled amongst the Santa Cruz Mountain range and the foothills of Pacifica and offers 1,150 acres of coastal mountain environment. As part of the San Mateo County Park system, it is part of 200 years of history that includes the Native American culture and the urban development of San Francisco. Longer distance runners will ascend the 1,900ft. climb of Montara Mountain North Peak and either pause to take a breath and appreciate views of the Farallon Islands and the exterior of Pacifica or turn without much thought outside of enjoying a long downhill trounce. Red Tail Hawks can be found spectating from the high branches of the abundant eucalyptus forest and during the rainy months of winter and spring, Brooks Falls is a spectacular sight as it drops 175 feet in three tiers that just may alleviate the feeling of heavy feet and aching quads. Distances range from 10k-30k, with the 10k being fast and without too much elevation gain. This park is ideal for family and friends who are awaiting their loved ones to finish as there are picnic areas with BBQ pits and plenty of space for a game of Frisbee or volleyball.

Parking is $6.00.

Sorry, no dogs are allowed in the park or on the trails.

ITR Refund Policy:
Entry fees to our trail runs are non-refundable, and we do not offer transfers or deferrals to future races. However, with advanced notice, we are happy to credit part of your entry fee to a future Inside Trail Racing event. A credit worth 75% of paid entry fee will be awarded up to two weeks of the event time; a credit worth 50% is provided when a cancellation is made between 2 weeks and up to 72 hours of the event. There will be no credits issued if a cancellation is declared within 72 hours of the race. Credits will be available for 1 full year from the date of the race.

Only registered runners can participate, and you may not exchange your entry with another individual.

We do not cancel races due to rain or heat. An act of God, such as earthquake, fire, or other natural disaster, which causes the area of a race to be closed may force cancellation or relocation of the event. If a race location is changed due to park closures, we will automatically transfer the registration over to the new venue, or we will issue credits in accordance with our cancellation policy. In the event a race is completely cancelled, or needs to be rescheduled, we will transfer a portion of your entry fee to another ITR event. Again, credits will be valid for 1 year.

Due to trail work, closures, or for myriad other reasons, permitting agencies may require changes to the publicized courses at any time prior to an event. This is out of our control, and we therefore will not offer refunds or credits in such a situation.

Hosting a trail running event is an expensive and risky endeavor. All race costs are paid for well in advance of race day, so there is no financial gain to be made if a person does not show up on race day. We want all of our registered runners to show up, run, and have fun. While we understand that injuries, conflicts, emergencies, deaths, and other unfortunate events happen and may impact your plans for participation, we must adhere to our cancellation policies.

Aid Stations

Inside Trail Racing aid stations are replete with an optimal variety of glycogen-replenishing, electrolyte-replacing products. The following is a list of some of the foods and beverages each aid station may provide: Gu Energy gels and chews, all-natural nutrition bars from Larabar, trail mix, pretzels, potato chips, Oreo cookies, Pop Tarts, boiled potatoes with salt, Coke, Mountain Dew, Ginger Ale, water, Tailwind Endurance Fuel, PB&J sandwiches, M&M’s, Mike & Ike’s, salt tablets, and tangerines. Aid stations are also equipped with general first aid items but no anti-inflammatory medicine. As distances between aid station vary, we strongly encourage all runners to carry at least one 20oz bottle during their run.

Tailwind is mixed so that it contains 180 – 200 calories per 20 fluid ounces.


 
VOLUNTEER

Without the support of enthusiastic and caring volunteers producing our races would not be possible. Volunteers of all ages and abilities help with setup, check-in, aid stations, course marshaling, timing, and post-race food.

Volunteering is a fun, novel way to experience races, play in the outdoors, and spend time with friendly people. All volunteers receive a free race T-shirt, free food, and the ability to earn credit toward a future Inside Trail Racing event, commensurate to the amount of time worked. Five hours of assisting an event results in a free race credit or Inside Trail merchandise.

To volunteer for this year’s event, please submit our online volunteer form.
