Official Website


Due to Covid-19, there will be no free kids races this year in an effort to eliminate crowds. There will be no print results. All results will be available online immediately following the race. Awards will be available for pick up the following week at Eastridge Rec Center. Please bring sufficient amounts of water as there will be no water coolers to refill water bottles. Bottled water will be available at the start/finish. As we try to eliminate gatherings at the start/finish, please manage your time wisely onsite after you have completed the race. Please remember to maintain social distance guidelines and recommendations as we try and keep everyone safe and healthy. If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or were in contact with someone who tested positive in the last 14 days, we encourage you to stay home. We ask that everyone abide by the aforementioned guidelines to keep our staff and our community safe and healthy and allow the races to continue to run in person and as scheduled. We thank you for your help and participation as we navigate these times!
