I’m really excited to announce that my next race is the Silicon Valley Half Marathon right here in my hometown. I’ve also decided to run the 5k on Saturday before the half marathon on Sunday because I like the challenge and earning extra medals for running!

Silicon Valley Half Marathon Swag
I’m really excited for this race’s swag! Along with a quarter zip long sleeve tech shirt, each runner receives this awesome duffle/runners bag! And of course, each runner gets a medal for each individual race and a bonus medal if you do both the 5k and the half marathon! Also, there are complimentary race photos for half marathon and 10k runners! There is nothing better than complimentary race photos!
Why I’m Excited for the Silicon Valley Half Marathon
The weather this time of year should be great for a morning run! Average temperature in mid April is 50-65º with little to no humidity which is perfect running weather. This should also be a relatively flat, easy course. I actually train/run around the downtown area where the Silicon Valley Half Marathon will take place a lot. There are a few hills, but it’s mostly flat.
I love running races through Silicon Valley, lots of people always come out to cheer runners on and there are plenty of spots for friends and family to cheer you on! The course for the Silicon Valley Half Marathon is different than the Rock n Roll course!
At bib pickup at Sports Basement there is a 20% discount on purchases by showing bib at checkout! Perfect if you were looking to buy some new running gear. You can also pick up your packet/bib at the Food Truck Festival on Saturday at 1:00pm which will have live music, a beer garden, and food trucks. The festival and packet pickup end at 7:30. There will be sunset yoga at 6:00pm on Saturday as well if you’re interested in some pre-race evening stretching!
