The Southern California Half Marathon & 5K welcomes and encourages running teams and clubs from the Southern California area to participate in our events and compete for awards against other running teams/clubs of similar make up.  We have the venue and interest in becoming the race that will bring together the running clubs/teams from our area to compete against each other.

As many clubs as we have, the Southern California area does not do a good job of staging an event where the clubs can be featured.  We want to be that event.  We feel that racing under this format will not only encourage the team members to train more often and harder but the racing will enhance their development as the workout pace increases with the racing.


  • Corporate – Private businesses and corporations
  • Open – A club with no affiliation to one of the above special groups
