Get fired up for the second annual 408k Race to the Row, which blasts off on March 10th. The race starts in Downtown San Jose, goes down The Alameda, and then winds its way to Santana Row. At the finish line you can earn back all of those calories by partying at the Row, hop on a free luxury bus back to Downtown, and continue partying and saving up calories for the next run!

UPS SWEAT CHECK: The fine folks in brown will again be at the starting line to accept your sweats, gear, and unmentionables. Ensure you have time to check your goods, so show up early and look for the beautiful line of UPS trucks adjacent to the starting line.
START: The race starts at HP Pavilion in Downtown San Jose. If you don’t know where this is then just google it. You’re likely from the great Silicon Valley area and you should know all about the google.
COURSE TIME LIMIT: You will need to maintain an 18 minute/mile pace to make the course time cut-off. All participants remaining on the course beyond this time limit will be asked to use the sidewalk, abide by traffic laws, and continue to the finish line.
FINISH: The finish line is at Santana Row (We’ve mentioned that multiple times because we view as a bit of a selling point. It’s near Stevens Creek Blvd…again try the google)
BUSING: You’re probably wondering, “if it starts downtown and ends at Santana Row then how do I get home?” First off, nice work detective. Now, three options:
(1) Get dropped off at the start and tell your mom to meet you at the Row.
(2) Cool down and run back
(3) Party at Santana Row and take the free shuttles buses back to the pavilion. Our Official Transportation Provider, Royal Coach Tours, will be ready to roll after the race.
