Race for Open Space has been extended into May! + Volunteer Opportunities

Race for Open Space has been extended into May! 

After considering the substantial repairs required on our courses due to recent storms, current predictions for even more rain and wind, and the continuing impacts to our surrounding communities, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the Adventure Course events, the Fun Run, and the Arroyo Seco Ranch guided hike until May. All other guided hikes and self-guided hikes remain open in April! The Race for Open Space is our largest fundraising event of the year, and we hope you will take advantage of all the hiking opportunities in April and these new dates for more adventures in May!

Here are the events originally scheduled for Saturday, April 1, which have been rescheduled to Saturday, May 27:

  • Palo Corona to South Bank Trail (2 mile) Fun Run
  • Williams Canyon to Palo Corona (8.5 mile) Adventure Course
  • Palo Corona to San Jose Creek Trail (9.5 mile) Adventure Course
  • Palo Corona to Mitteldorf Preserve (21 mile) Adventure Course

The Arroyo Seco Ranch Guided Hike originally scheduled on Sunday, April 9 has been rescheduled to Saturday, May 6.

Please note: All Race for Open Space self-guided hike opportunities at Mitteldorf Preserve and Glen Deven Ranch are still open throughout April. And, with exception of the Arroyo Seco Ranch hike, all guided hikes are also still being held in April.
