TULARE COUNTY – Living healthy is a lifestyle, and the End of the Trail 10K and half marathon is putting it on display.

New for 2020, the 10K and half marathon have partnered to bring racers the Healthy Living Expo at the Visalia Convention Center on Saturday, Feb. 29 before race day. This may just be the largest expo in the Valley with an emphasis on fitness and vendors.

Proceeds benefit local high school running programs, athlete scholarships and community running events. Also new for 2020, a portion of proceeds will benefit the Historic End of the Trail Statue in Mooney Grove Park.

Don’t miss out on this flat and fast course and NY Qualifier that is making waves in the Valley. The 10K may just be the “best” 10K in the entire valley with its very own pacers and cash prizes. 

Starting in Downtown Visalia, the half marathon and 10k route takes runners through residential streets and neighborhoods and onto the Santa Fe Trail. Half Marathoners continue to the historic End of the Trail bronze statue in Mooney Grove Park before heading back to the party at the finish line. 

The finish line expo features a beer garden, food, chocolate milk, cash prizes, pace cars, and giveaways. Easy PR or a great tune up for Boston. They will even take your perfect photo that you can download for free.

Later on this month will be the Rocky Hill Triathlon. There will be two distances for the race. The Short Course will have a 400 yard swim, 12.5 mile bike and 3.1 mile run with a course fee of $65. The Long Course will have an 800 yard swim, 24.8 mile bike and 6.2 mile run with a course fee of $105.
