West Valley Track Club

Like wearing short shorts and sweating through your shirt? We know you do. West Valley Track Club is the premier running club on the Peninsula with track workouts and 6–12+ mile runs that’ll kick your ass.

 

Board Member Jason Karbelk describes West Valley as a “competitive, social running club that promotes training hard, racing hard, but having fun.” He says that a majority of the members ran competitively either in high school or college.

Karbelk did stress that membership is “very, very, very social.” Favorite events include Bay to Breakers, where 13 members connected by bungie run the race as a centipede, and a 70 mile relay around Lake Tahoe that’s been a West Valley tradition for the last 50+ years.

 

New member dues are $60 for the year ($50 for a renewal). If you’re interested getting started, email West Valley’s Peninsula team captain, Nicole Campbell (nicolercampbell@gmail.com).
