Our 2nd Annual Watermelon Run with Santa Cruz High School is scheduled for Saturday, September 4th at the University of Santa Cruz. We will DEPART from the Valley Christian Parking lot (in front of the football stadium) at 8 am. We will caravan to UCSC where we will compete against Santa Cruz High School over a 2.08 mile hilly loop. The race is in the hills through the redwood forest on the campus of UCSC. For those who will meet us there, we will meet at the parking lot just past the UCSC firehouse on Chinquapin Rd. We will have one race (boys & girls combined) starting at 10 am.
