IMPORTANT: Race Date Change to May 14th!

Willow Glen 5K Race organizers were just informed traffic control could not be provided for our race on its originally planned date of May 7th.

We apologize for this unexpected turn of events. Safety of our racers is our highest concern, so we worked closely with the City of San Jose to find an alternate date. Fortunately, we were able to secure Saturday, May 14th.

If you can’t make May 14th, we understand and you can obtain a refund by forwarding your registration receipt email to Or, please consider your registration as a tax-deductible donation to our local schools. If you have any questions, please mail for a quick response.
