This run involves a rugged, challenging course which starts off flat, progresses over some hills in the middle, and is followed by a downhill and flat finish. For the past 44 years, the Dammit Run has grown in popularity. The reason for this growth is due to the beauty of the course, which travels along the creek trail and through the wooded hills. After the race, runners enjoyed various vendor booths, a post race raffle (prizes are donated by generous local merchants), refreshments, music and down-right fun.
The race starts tamely enough on the track at Los Gatos High School, and finishes in the same location. Participants run down the trail next to Los Gatos High School's lower field, past the Old Mill onto the Los Gatos creek trail and make the climb up to Lexington Reservoir. Runners continue up Saint Josephs Hill (Jones Trail), loop around and head back down the hill to College Avenue. They then reenter the trail and finish on the track at Los Gatos High School.
Proceeds from the Dammit Run benefit the Los Gatos High School track repair fund.
