Meet Zoom!

Coastal Trail Runs has a new sister company called Zoom running events!

From the website:

Zoom events are designed to be easier, flatter, and faster than our more challengingCoastal Trail Runs series. The courses are always scenic and  typically along a combination of asphalt and dirt paths. We’re known for our well-marked courses, great aid stations, accurately measured distances, immediate race results, quality shirt designs, and family atmosphere. 

This is awesome..and a brilliant business move if Wendell scan keep up with all these events! Now there are even more low-key races around here to run. This is an awesome place to live for trail running!


Here's a painted turtle i saw on my run Tuesday (shell is about 8" long). Excuse the long range cell phone photo..


There are 500 runners signed up for the race Saturday! 49 doing the marathon and FIVE are in my age group. ;) Luckily, CTR uses timing chips now so no rush to cross the starting line.


  1. I need glasses, I can't see the turtle :(.

    Good luck with the race - I hope it goes well and you beat the other 4 in your AG! :)

  2. Best of luck to you on Saturday Paul...I'm sure you'll do well and look forward to reading your review.

  3. This new company sounds interesting as well, I used to run on the baylands a lot, so I might end up doing some of these races too.

  4. I wish we had organizations like Zoom here in the islands.

    Enjoy your race.

  5. Paul, so nice meeting you on the trail. I'm the guy that was lucky to be in your shot, in the grove of eucalyptus. Looking forward to you photos.

    1. Nice to meet you too! Hope you had a great day!
