This event is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Hollister and was first run in 1983. All proceeds go to benefit local scholarships and charities. San Juan Bautista is a small California Mission town just off Hwy 101 approximately 50 miles south of San Jose. The four races: 1/2 marathon, 10 miles, 5k and 1 Mile kids fun run, all start and finish in front of the historic and beautiful San Juan Mission. The area is rural and the course takes runners through farm land and up the Anzar hills. Medals are awarded three deep in standard age categories. The 1/2 marathon and 10 mile races (both TAC Distance Certified) are particularly good training for upcoming spring marathons. Theme teams encouraged and trophies will be awarded to top teams.

The event is comprised of a 1/2 Marathon, a 10 Mile race, a 5K race and a 1 mile fun run. The 5K and 10 mile races will be professionally timed by South Valley Endurance. The 5K has been popular with both competitive and casual runners. Walkers are also welcomed for the 5k. The 10 mile race has been TAC Certified, and will take participants on a route through the scenic farmland and hills outside of San Juan Bautista. The 1/2 Marathon and 10 mile distance races provide a great training base for spring marathons. We are trying to grow this event while still maintaining the qualities appreciated by the runners who have made the Mission 10 a destination for years. Please tell your friends!
