What’s the best way to celebrate finishing a 5k run? With brunch of course! We are excited to announce that Runch 2 will be taking place on Sunday, March 5th, 2017 at Orange County Great Park in Irvine, CA. It’s the first event that combines the traditional 5k road race with a one-of-a-kind outdoor brunch! This allows runners to explore a city by running the streets while providing an opportunity to enjoy dishes from some of the best foodie spots in the city.
The post race champagne brunch is a celebration of our mission. It is a social event that allows friends and families to spend quality time together, and experience the local food scene in a beautiful outdoor setting that they can’t find anywhere else.
Our first event at the Queen Mary was a huge success that brought in over 700 participants! All runners enjoyed an amazing route with beautiful views of Downtown Long Beach and food catered by some of the most popular restaurants in the area!
