Route information
Irvine Valley College plays host to what has been voted the #1 race in Orange County. The Annual Reaching for the Cure Half Marathon, 10K, 5K and 1K Kids Run is more than just a race, but a truly epic event that brings together over 5000 participants, 2000 spectators, and 600 volunteers all to raise money and awareness for eradicating Childhood Cancer.
The mildly undulating course takes you around the Irvine Valley College campus, and with the course being on closed, fast tarmac and officially chip timed, it's the perfect opportunity to get a personal best, train for future races, or even just to run for a good time, all to support a fantastic cause.
After the event, celebrate with the masses of fellow runners and spectators, and support local vendors at the Finish Line Festival.
