There’s no better way to start Thanksgiving than with a 5k run through Simi Valley. Great for all, this undulating course takes you along a tree-lined bike path so you won’t have to worry about cars or the sun. Come along for the medal, finisher’s shirt and goodies.

FAQs

Will there be port-o-potties along the course?
Yes:  At every aid station

Can I walk the course? 
Yes: walkers are welcome, stroller moms, and walking clubs as well, please stay to the right of the path at all times.  Those of you who are new to 5k, are encouraged to come out and push yourself to new limits of fitness.
All of our courses are designed with EVERYONE in mind!

Is the course accurately measured and marked?
Yes:  We have measured the course using a GPS watch and checked it three different times with three different runners.  That is the best we can do, as you know GPS will vary slightly from time to time but it’s the best we can offer for you.  Feel free to check it out on your own watch if you have time prior to the race. There will be mile markers on the course.

I don't know the course, should I just follow someone?

NO: All athletes are required to know the entire course prior to stepping onto the starting line. Please study the race course map on this site, and maybe drive the course if you have time prior to race day.
