The 5K run is a looped 3.1 mile course that will start and end at Westfield Valencia Town Center. A great event for all ages and all paces! Strollers, Skateboards, and dogs are not permitted on the course. Walkers are encouraged to enter the Mayor’s Walk.
The 10K run will start on Magic Mountain Parkway and cross over the Iron Horse Bridge before continuing on the City’s paved trails to the finish line. Join your fellow runners on this 6.2 mile course for a good challenge!
Starting at Westfield Valencia Town Center, the looped course follows 26.2 miles of roadways, paved City trails and paseos to its finish line. The Marathon is a Boston qualifier and is USATF certified.
The Half Marathon starts simultaneously with the Marathon, following the same course before breaking away after the 12.5 mile point for a finish at the Westfield Valencia Town Center. The course is relatively flat, but includes some switchbacks, short inclines and declines on paseo bridges, crossing over and under main City streets.
If you’ve been looking for a way to get involved with the Santa Clarita Marathon, but running just isn’t your pace, then the Mayor’s Walk is for you! This 3-mile community walk is safe, simple and doesn’t require much training.
Visit over 30 health-related vendors and information booths. Here, runners may sign up for events and race participants pick-up race bibs and t-shirts.
All runners are required to pick up their race packet with ID at the Expo. If you are unable to pick up your race packet, someone else may pick up your race bib and T-shirt for you with your photo ID and race confirmation. Or you can sign up for race day packet service for an additional $25.
