  • Santa Teresa King Richard Annual Trail Run

    Santa Teresa County Park, Bernal Rd, San Jose, CA 95120, USA

    I created and named this event after him. My dad has always been a king to me. I remember him sharing stories of his running in Santa Teresa County Park when he was young and the love he had for it. He loved the area so much that as an adult he purchased a brand new home in the Santa Teresa area and lived there for more than 40 years! My dad was a respected English teacher at Leland High school until he retired. My dad makes me proud! In years past, when I started this event, my dad would start the runners with a huge smile on his face! This event is my way to celebrate my love for him! So, come join us in celebrating my dad and enjoy a wonderful race with us! 

    Distances: Half Marathon, 10.5 Miler, 10K, 5K
