The Holiday 5K is flat enough for those looking to be competitive, but friendly enough for families and runners looking to have a good time. It is also a great warm up for the Holiday Half Marathon on Sunday!

The Holiday 5K features snow at the start line and a snowflake medal at the finish. Get into the spirit of the season at the Holiday 5K on Saturday, December 9, 2017.

The Holiday 5K starts and finishes in the main plaza of Fairplex So Cal, home of the LA County Fair. Runners do a small neighborhood loop before heading towards the oldest venue on the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series circuit, the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. After a quick sprint down the drag strip, runners head back to the fairgrounds for a fast finish.
