The Parks & Recreation Committee invites all residents to participate in our fun 2.5 mile race from Rossotti's (Alpine Inn) to the Town Center.

  • Registration begins at 9 am, with the race starting at 10 am at Rossotti's (Alpine Inn) on Alpine Road.
  • Registration fee is $15 per participant, and all paid contestants with race bibs can turn in their bib for a t-shirt at the end of the race.
  • Each participant is to write their age on their bibs to help the end line judges to determine the winners.
  • The race course starts on Alpine Road in front of Rossotti's, travels to Portola Road where it turns right and ends at the PV Town Center, 100 yards down the side road to the tennis courts and Spring Down Equestrian Center.
  • There will be water jugs at various stations before and after the race.

PLEASE NOTE: This is the last year that the race will permit bikes and other wheeled vehicles; next year (2014) we will return to the traditional foot race, primarily for safety reasons. Only children 4 and under will be allowed to ride a trike or bike if accompanied by an adult. At this year's registration, bikers and those on wheeled vehicles will be notified that this will be the final year where bikes, scooters, and other wheeled vehicles will be permitted.
