The Mountain House Kite Run and Festival is one of the community’s most popular and most beloved events. The 5k and 10k Kits courses loop through Mountain House, between Livermore and Tracy, starting next to Central Park and circling the Creek Park. Our flat, fast loop course is always spectator friendly, so family members and neighbors can come cheer each other on. The park is, of course, a nature-oriented open space that extends along an existing creek and related wetlands, so you’ve got a run with a view.
Experienced runners, and those who have just begun to don their running shoes equally enjoy the time spent getting out and exercising in the sunshine. There’s even a Kid’s Fun Run to get the littlest Mountain House community members active. The course is great for beginners, and is a hit from year to year.
After they’ve set your Kite Run personal record, many residents head over to the Kite Festival to spend the rest of the day flying kites, enjoying good food, and mingling with neighbors. With bounce houses for the kids, live entertainment, and lots of vendors to check out, this event never disappoints.
