You’ve spent hours outside this summer, racking up countless miles on off-street trails, sidewalks and paseos, but are all those miles just a number sitting in your fitness tracker? If so, now is your chance to turn your mileage into rewards by registering for the city of Santa Clarita’s Run Santa Clarita virtual race series, with virtual races in October, November and December.
The Run Santa Clarita series will kick off Friday, Oct. 23, and run through Sunday, Oct. 25. Over the three-day weekend, participants will complete a 5K (3.1 miles) in one session anywhere they choose.
The series will continue in November with results being accepted for participants who complete a virtual race from Nov. 20-22. Finally, the series will wrap as we say so long to 2020 with an end-of-the-year virtual race Dec. 18-20.
Registration for the Run Santa Clarita virtual races is open now, and runners can sign up for individual weekends or the entire series. In the Run Santa Clarita series, more running means more rewards: Earn a finisher’s medal for each race you complete and unite all three to assemble one large, overall challenge medal.
Prices range based on the number of races and gear you want to earn. Registration for one race, which includes a printable bib, race certificate and medal, is $20 per person. For $40, you will be able to sign up for the one race package and also receive a special event gaiter/buff. Run all three events for $50 and get a printable bib, certificate and medals, or spend $100 and get all three races plus the gaiter/buff and an exclusive event shirt.
