RACE & COURSE INFORMATION
All races start and finish in the Quarry Lakes Recreational Area (see location below). The course is mostly dirt fire trails with a very small portion of pavement at the beginning and end. Hills are nearly non-existent, so it is perfect for walkers, hikers and runners of all levels.

All participants can receive a copy of the course map on race day. If this is your first time on this course, please take the time to familiarize yourself with the course and note the location of the water and aid stations and bathrooms. The course will be marked with ribbons, flour and signs to help keep runners on the correct course. Volunteers will also be on the course at key locations to help direct runners.
Water and aid stations will be located at the start/finish of the race and approximately 1.5 miles into the 5K course. An additional water/aid station will be located at the turn around for the 10K. Should medical assistance be needed along the course, volunteers will be able to contact the Race Officials to attain medical aid. Runners who may need more water, should carry their own water bottle or hydration pack.
Bathrooms will be available at the race start/finish area. There are also a two bathroom locations on the course.
The route of 10K and 5K Run/Walk are on gravel-like paths. While this does not pose any hazardous conditions (as Quarry Lakes hosts many Run/Walk events), participants should prepare accordingly. Parents with strollers are highly encouraged to use baby joggers with inflated, rubber wheels.
Note: The Kids All Abilities Run will be hosted on a paved road.
You can change your distance on race morning. Downgrading is free. Upgrading requires paying the difference between your paid registration fee and the race day registration fee. On race day, pick-up your bib from the current distance you registered for, let them know you want to change your distance. They will direct you to take your bib to the “change desk” and exchange it for the new distance. Pay fees, if applicable. Be sure to bring cash or a check.
All pre-registered runners will receive a cotton t-shirt unless they upgrade to a technical shirt for an additional $15. Both the cotton and technical shirts are unisex and sizes range from adult small to adult xx-large.
Kids shirts are only available in cotton and sizes range from youth small to youth large.
Please be sure to specify your t-shirt size when you register.
If you register after our regular registration deadline of 9/17 or on the day of the event, we cannot guarantee that you will receive a t-shirt.
Please register early to help us plan accordingly so that no one misses out on a t-shirt.
In addition to medals, special prizes will be awarded to overall 10K & 5K male and female winners. Age group medals (three deep) will be awarded in the following categories for both 10K & 5K:
12 & under
Participant medals will be given out to all kids (12 and under) registered for All Abilities Kids Race.
After the majority of the runners from each race have finished, our timing company will provide us with the final results which will be posted. If you placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in your age group, you will be able to pick up your medal at the designated area. Please be patient as the timing company will need a little time to make sure the final results are accurate.
If you must leave early without collecting your age group medal, please mail a self-addressed stamped envelope ($2.00 postage) to Do It For Delaney, 41041 Trimboli Way, #1960, Fremont, CA 94538, and we will mail your medal to you.
