This is a great site! Thanks for compiling all the running events around the area. The student-athletes at Meathead Movers are the only movers to JOG when not carrying anything, so this list of running events pairs perfectly with our training between moving days. Thanks again!

Thanks for the great info!

Does anybody know what happened to the annual 5k/10k Independence Day fun run at Channel Islands Harbor? I missed last year, but was really looking forward to continuing a tradition in 2011...

2 years ago (maybe it was 3 years now?) I ran in the "TO 5K/10K".. but every year they shut down their web site and I have the hardest time finding them again (it WAS at I also can't remember who it was sponsored by, or who it was benefitting. if anyone has the info please let me know? thx!
but meanwhile - very very happy to have found this site.. added to 'favorites' so I can always come back :)
