Join South Valley Running Club for the 2017 edition of the Mt. Madonna Challenge. Entering its 42nd year, this long held race through scenic courses of Oak, Manzanita and Redwood trees will give you breathtaking views and provide an ample challenge for all levels of runners! 2017 will feature new distances as we switch to a more traditional 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon format. All runners will receive first class support with Aid Stations and volunteers along the course. The first 150 registered participants will be guaranteed a unisex t-shirt and custom finishers medal. Overall distance winners will receive custom awards!
