Be a part of a local running tradition! We started this race over thirty years ago to give women a chance to race with other women, back when most race participants were men. A lot has changed since then, but we still love our women’s race, and we think you will, too-- whether you’re in it to break the tape, or just looking to try a new distance in a fun and supportive atmosphere.
COURSE: The Aptos Women’s 5-Miler starts and finishes in Aptos Village Park, following flat-to-rolling paved and dirt roads through the Forest of Nisene Marks. The course also includes a short and scenic stretch of single-track trail, and travels through oak and redwood forest.
DIVISIONS: 13 & under; 14-19; 20-24; 25-29; 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60-69; 70+; top finishing mother-daughter; top finishing sisters (Results will be posted online.)
Registration fee includes running socks and a reusable shopping bag, which you can pick up along with your packet on race day. We won't mail you anything in advance. The race will be held rain or shine. Walkers are (always!) welcome, but unfortunately we cannot have wheels or dogs on the course. Please contact Luke DeBrito (firstname.lastname@example.org or 831-331-0726) if accommodations are needed, or if you have any questions. You can also check out our website and our Facebook page (We love "Likes"!) for more information.
