GIA & ZOE VON BARGEN


Gia (Age 9)


Zoe (Age 7)



How did you hear about Pacifica Runners?

Through our mom.

How long have you been runners?

Gia: I have been running with my family since I was young, but my first race, Big Bunny Fun Run, was when I was 4 years old.

Zoe: I have also been running with my family all the time, but my first race, San Jose Kids Rock and Roll, was 2 years old. When we were 5 and 3, we did 4.2 mile (800' elevation) run/hike frequently and ran more trails around Pacifica. This year we ran and hiked to North Peak twice. We feel so accomplished and proud ourselves.

How did you get into running?

Our family runs very often, and since my mom ran many races, we wanted to do it too.

Do you have a favorite race(s)?

We like Tiki Trot and St. Patrick's Day Races by Pacifica Runners. We also love "The Color Run 5K" race with has any colors and bubbles. So fun!

What are your favorite running trails/routes?

Gia: Old trout farm trail since I have a good field trip memory from my 2nd grade.

Zoe: Pedro Point behind Ace Hardware Store because it is so hidden, quiet and has many steep hills. I like climbing steep hills. We also like Purisima Creek Trail. It is so beautiful and has a lovely creek to play.

What are your future running goals?

Gia: Entering many races and getting trophies, medals and ribbons!

 Zoe: One day I want to run a 100 mile race like my mommy.

What do you enjoy most about Pacifica Runners?

We enjoy the events. We like meeting many people we know. We also love the prizes. :-)

Any other cool info about yourselves?

Gia: I love drawing anime.

Zoe: I love drawing also, I love playing video games with Gia. Our favorite games are Minecraft, Roblox, and Just Dance.
