This race has been run every year since 1975 on a course that runs alongside and across the wash south of JPL. The JPL Running Club's 40th Annual Arroyo Seco Freako Microthon (Charles Voge Memorial Run) will be run on its traditional April Fools date: Tuesday, April 1, 2014.We expect to run the same course as last year, but with a water crossing since the Arroyo is wet this year, unless we hear otherwise from the club members.

Getting to the Start:
Exit the JPL Main Gate and turn left at the Foothill Blvd traffic signal. Follow the road as it turns parallel to Oak Grove Drive. Opposite the high school, turn left (down the hill) into lower Hahamongna Park, then at the bottom turn right to the lower parking lot near the baseball diamonds.

Alternatively, on foot, you can exit the South Gate (by the Credit Union) and take an immediate left onto the bridle trail just outside the gate. Turn right at the "T" intersection then follow the paved road past the Forest Service station. Continue on the road and bear left at the "Y" (don't go uphill). Look for the start in the lower parking lot near the baseball diamonds on your right.

It takes about 10 minutes to get to the start area if you jog or walk briskly.  Please arrive by 11:45 am to register.

Volunteers are also wanted. Please let either Sam or Melora know if you can help out with the registration, photographs, or finish line.
