The Brave Race offers a very flat and fast course for the 5k and the 10k with start and finish on the track at Aliso Niguel High School. Special handcrafted tiles are awarded to winners in categories and medals for all participants. Fun activities and music create a positive atmosphere. The races benefit the Joyful Child Foundation in memory of Samantha Runnion. The foundation creates and implements programs to prevent violence, abuse and exploitation of children and youth.
