Course: Winds through the scenic neighborhoods and fruit ranches of Apple Hill along moderately undulating paved roads.  The new 7-mile event is two loops of the 3.5-mile course. No bikes, pets or roller blades, please. Participants with baby strollers/joggers are requested to start in the back and stay to the left of the other runners. See Course Map for more details.

Course Time Limit: Our event permit allows us to utilize the beautiful roads of Apple Hill from 8:50am to 11:00am. This should allow plenty of time for everyone to comfortably finish the 3.5 mile run/walk event. The more challenging 7-mile event is designed as a run and requires each participant to maintain a 17 minute/mile pace or faster. For the safety of our participants and the residents of Apple Hill, the CHP has instructed us to provide a sag wagon for those participants not able to maintain this 17 min/mile pace. We will provide a ride back to the finish for those participants who fail to reach the 5-mile mark by 1 hour and 25 minutes.

Age Divisions: 12 & under, 13-15, 16-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+

The drop off point is adjacent to Rainbow Orchards at Barkley Rd and Larsen Drive. Buses will begin shuttling participants back to the upper parking lots after the event starting at 10:15am. The bus pickup will be at the same spot as the drop off location.

Lost & Found: Located at the Volunteer Tent.

Baggage Check:As a convenience to our participants, we will provide a monitored bag check. We will do all that we can to ensure the safety of your items, however the Apple Hilltm Harvest Run cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items. Please do not leave valuables.
