Feel Good. Do Good.
26 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!
The 100 Mile Club® began its work in 1993, so registration is only $93 (through December 17). TImed 5K is $25.
Ultramarathon registration is a two-step process.

Something For Everyone

Bands will play and vendors will dish out food and drinks to keep you going. Whether you're participating in the 5k, 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 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 (no fires), etc), tent, or any gear you need (chairs, sleeeping bags, towels, etc).
Local time: 6:37 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 24Hr Running event is part of The Southern California's UltraRunner's Grand Prix Series.
