It turned out to be such a fine idea back in the spring of 1978 that the Great Race is still going strong some fourty years later.

More than 1,100 participants took part in the 39th annual run from Saratoga to Los Gatos on Apr 24–everyone from competitive runners to moms pushing strollers, from kids to senior citizens, from those out for a challenging workout to et just hoping to enjoy the scenic jog down Hwy 9.

Thirteen-year-old Colin Peattie was the first Los Gatos runner to finish, stopping the watch at 22:27 to place 6th overall and first in his age group.
