What a great place to run a Double! San Juan Bautista is nestled in the heart of the noted San Juan Valley between the Gabilan Mountains and Flint Hills just 35 minutes south of San Jose California. Rich with culture and history, San Juan Bautista offers her residents and visitors a refreshing small town atmosphere filled with the charm and character of the past. The Mission is the largest of the California missions with the only Spanish Plaza left in the state. The downtown dining and shopping experience is in the National Register of Historic Places. Our new course in 2016 will take in more of the Historic Downtown area. Photos by Bob Anderson for Double Runner magazine.
