Event details and schedule

Early Packet Pick-up (Friday, June 24 from 10am-7pm): 


235 N. Lake Ave.

Pasadena, CA 91101


The course is mostly packed dirt with some hills. It is an intermediate course but also one that anyone could PR on, but we believe that this will be a lot of fun for runners of all levels! Prizes await the top male and female winners!

Upon arrival to the re-creation center, follow signs to the AQUATIC CENTER. Make your way to the giant pool and from there it should be pretty easy to see the start line. 

Parking is available and plentiful, just follow signs to the aqutic center. There is no fee to park. 

Come in your running attire and bring a change of clothes for the pool after, or better yet, run in your swimming attire! Sunblock, a hat and sunglasses are recommended but not required.
