Half Marathon

Start Time

7am Sharp!

Course Description

The Jungle Run Half Marathon consists of a 13.1-mile run/walk that starts and finishes in Los Gatos at the Los Gatos High School Track. The course extends North through the streets of Los Gatos and onto the scenic Los Gatos Creek Trail at the Los Gatos Creek County Park in Campbell. Athletes will enjoy creek-side views on their way back into Los Gatos and into breathtaking Vasona Park. After a small loop around Vasona Lake, athletes will continue South on the Los Gatos Creek Trail into Old Town Los Gatos. From there, it’s a short out and back on the unpaved portion of the trail. The turn around takes place before the Dam (and the hills!). Runners then retrace their steps back to the finish line festivities on the Los Gatos High School track.

Due to heavy beach traffic in town the 2016 Course will be different then the Turn-By-Turn Listed Below. We will return to the old course in 2017.
