SV Half & 5K: Real Virtual Racing™


We’ve partnered with PWR Lab, a Silicon Valley digital platform that helps runners of any level to perform optimally, to create a Real Virtual Racing experience unlike any other.

In addition to the 408 Challenge from January 1 – May 2, your SV Half or 5K has its very own race week:

Silicon Valley Half presented by Excite Credit Union

  • Half Marathon (13.1 miles) or 5K (3.1 miles)

  • Friday April 22 – Sunday, May 1

  • Benefits Silicon Valley Education Foundation (youth STEM education)

The 5K and 10K will have live courses where you’ll be able to run your best while also comparing yourself directly to others on your own time from Friday, April 22 – Sunday, May 2.

If you are not in the area or prefer to run your own course, you’ll be able to upload those times and still see how you match up.
