Feel Good. Do Good.
25 years ago one teacher, in one classroom, made a commitment to her students - to help them find joy in school and become happy, healthy, and connected.
With the goal to make fitness a way of life she challenged them to run or walk 100 miles in a single school year.
The success of these students led to the formation of the 100 Mile Club®, that has since expanded to over 4,000 schools in all 50 states across the country.
Now it's time to celebrate 25 amazing years with our HUGE Run4Kids 25 Hour Running Party!
Registration is only $93 for each Ultra and Relay event because the 100 Mile Club® began its work in 1993. The 5k's are $25 in honor of the 25 year anniversary :)
When you register for our 12 hour, 25 hour, 100 mile Ultra or Relay we ask that you commit to fundRacing $100 or more for the 100 Mile Club®. And for our 5k registrants we're asking for a $25 fundRacing commitment. Don't worry, we make fundraising easy! We set up a Crowdrise page for you to share. Oh and we have SUPER special awards and incentives for fundRacing. Contact us for more info at Run4Kids25@gmail.com
Something For Everyone
The festivities start at 7pm on Friday and will run for 25 hours, until 8pm on Saturday March 10th 2018. We will host three 5ks, two 12 hours, a 100 Miler, a 25 hour and a 7 hour kids running event! There truly is SOMETHING for EVERYONE. This is your #NOEXCUSES running event.
Bands will play and vendors will dish out food and drinks to keep you going. Whether you're participating in one 5k (we do have a 5k Buy Two Get One FREE Special), a 12 hour relay team, running the 25 hour Ultra division, pushing for a 100 mile PR, or simply supporting a friend... this event is always FUN!.. And most importantly its all about the kids. Lets inspire our youth to stay active and healthy by leading the way!
Course Description/ What to Bring
Bring your own "aid" station (food, drinks, water, ice chests, camping stove, etc), tent, or any gear you need (chairs, sleeeping bags, towels, etc).
Local time: 8:15 AM
You can set up alongside the course in our designated area, with quick access to your personal station every 1/2 mile. This is great for new ultra marathon runners. You can really test yourself without the added risk of being stuck miles from your next "aid" station.
Make sure to bring your headlamps/ flash lights and any other gear you'd normally use during your races. The track is flat, mostly packed dirt with a small concrete section. It may be cold at night and hot during the day. Be prepared for a 50 degree swing in temps.
This is an excellent course for individuals looking for PR's. The course is flat, 1/2 mile loop, wide enough for easy passing in most areas.
When the children show up at 9am on Saturday morning, YOU WILL feel their energy! From prior years feedback, "YOU WILL catch a second wind when you see the kids smiling faces and hear them cheering you on!"
Runners will be allowed up to 27 hours to complete 100 miles, with a requirement of being at 90 miles by 24 hours.
The Run4Kids 25Hr Running event is part of The Southern California's UltraRunner's Grand Prix Series.
