Feel Good. Do Good.
27 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 another year and support some awesome kids with our Run4Kids 24 Hour Running Party!
Something For Everyone
The festivities start at 8am on Saturday and will run for 24 hours, until 8am on Sunday March 15th 2020. We will host a 5k, 6 hour, 12 hour, 100 Miler, and a 24 hour along side our FREE kids running event! There truly is SOMETHING for EVERYONE. This is your #NOEXCUSES running event.
Whether you're participating in the 5k, the 6 hour, the 12 hour, running the 24 hour Ultra division, pushing for a 100 mile PR, or simply supporting a friend, this event is always FUN!.. And most importantly it's all about the kids. Let's 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 (no fires), etc), tent, or any gear you need (chairs, sleeeping bags, towels, etc). We will host a small aid station with coffee, soup, and some snacks.
Local time: 2:49 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.
Running with our 100 Mile Club kids is so much FUN! YOU WILL feel their energy! From prior years feedback, "YOU WILL feel like a super hero when you see the kids smiling faces and hear them cheering you on!"
Runners will be allowed up to 30 hours to complete 100 miles, with a requirement of being at 85 miles by 24 hours.
The Run4Kids 24Hr Running event is part of The Southern California's UltraRunner's Grand Prix Series.
