Here’s a list of a few local running events around Silicon Valley and the Bay Area:

And one that’s not quite in the neighborhood:
The Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend includes a 5k, Half Marathon and a Full Marathon in Orlando, Florida in January 2013. You can also choose to run the “Goofy”, Goofy’s Race and a Half Challenge. A 39.3-mile run that combines the half and full marathons on Saturday and Sunday (12-13 January 2013)
Note the quote from Walt Disney on the front: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them” Apt words for the dreamers here in the Valley
