10k Runs in California

10k (or 6.2 mile) races are a more challenging prospect for beginners than 5k events, but they maintain the friendly atmosphere. While staying friendly, they can be a bit a more competitive, as regular runners will want to push under 40 minutes and hit a new PB. The 10k distance is also a great stepping stone towards harder 10 mile races or half marathons. In California, many of these events take place in the major cities and along the famous coastlines, but there are also a range of options which explore beyond the cities, into the stunning landscapes that the Golden State has to offer. The coastlines, National Parks, mountains and deserts of California provide an endless variety. 10k races are often part of larger running festivals. For example the Avenue of the Giants has a 10k option, allowing family members to get their running fix before relatives take on the longer half-marathon or marathon distance options.
