Run The World Gobal Challenge celebrates running around the world.  We have finished our first year. RTW Global Challenge 6 is a 10 week program that started July 2, 2019 and will finish 10-weeks later on September 11.  The idea is to run or walk and then log those miles on your My Best Runs account. There is no entry fee.  You just need a MBR account and that’s Free too.  Once you sign up you log your miles on your account.

13.14 miles in Woodside, California (runner profile)

Ran over to Buck’s in Woodside from our house in Los Altos. This course has it all: roads, single track trails, wider trails, easy downhill, steep up hills, shade, sun, and even a lake. One of my fav courses. I would have never thought it was possible to run from Los Altos to Woodside until I googled it and selected walking to Woodside several months back. Sure enough there was a route! (Sun 11)
