Map of Wildflower Run Course

We expect to run the same course we ran as last year. Depending on water levels in the reservoir on race day, we may need to change a portion of the course near the Emergency Call Box. The course will be marked with signs in mid February so runners can practice.

Wildflower Run 10K
April 26, 2014

Thank you to everyone wh came out for our run today, it was great fun.

Results posted by our timer, A Change of Pace Foundation

We FINALLY have photos from the run posted.

The Fifth Los Vaqueros Wildflower Run went well, despite issues with the weather.

We had 65 runners, and 80 registered.

  Thomas Taylor of Brentwood won the men's race.  He also won the race in 2010, which was shortened due to rain.  Thomas has won every race he's run at LV -- now five.  Beth Vitalis of Livermore won the women's race, her second Wildflower Run in a row. 

Rain on Friday left The Badger Pass Trail too muddy to run on, so thecourse was shortened to 5.3 miles with very little mud.




2013 Race Recap

Start of Wildflower Run, 2013
George Cross (101) is in the lead at the start of the race in 2013. He and David Pritchett (in black) battled closely during the first two-thirds of the 10K race.

George Cross of Tracy won two straight events at Los Vaqueros Saturday, May 4 by taking the Wildflower Run with a 42:52.4 over the warm and windy 10.2 k mile course.

Cross also won the 10K Los Vaqueros Tarantula Run at LV in October.

David Pritchett finished second overall with a 44:30.2

Beth Vitalis of of Livermore, an ultra marathoner who had not competed in two years, won the women's division with a 50:51.1 while finishing fourth overall.

In all, a record field of 115 runners participated in the hilly race that started near the Marina. Because 2013 has so far proved to be one of the driest years on record, most of the wildflowers in the area had disappeared by race day.

The Wildflower Run had been on hiatus for the last two years while the reservoir was expanded. With its new capacity, some of the trails have been rerouted, making the course hillier and longer than in the past.

Beth and KevinBeth Vitalis and Kevin Coren race near the 2.5 mile mark on the course. Beth won the women's division, and Kevin - who has competed in every race at Los Vaqueros -- finished sixth overall.
