  • Army Advisory Council of San Diego
    Sponsored by the San Diego Army Advisory Council, the Community Salute to Heroes 5K Crossfit Race celebrates and benefits American do-gooders including first responders and military families. The race begins at Grossmont High School, with heats taking off from the starting line at 15-minute intervals. As runners navigate the 5K course, Army representatives will greet them at the end of each kilometer with optional CrossFit exercises. Because the CrossFit stations are optional and most people can’t read military time, runners will not be timed. As the runners make their way toward the finish line, the festivities continue around them. The mayor of El Cajon will oversee proceedings as the master of ceremonies, and a two-star general will be on hand to swear in more than 100 future soldiers. Spectators can take in musical performances by the Heroes throughout the day, or send little ones to the Kiddy Corner for bounce-house sessions and other activities.

  • Gladiator Rock'n Run PASADENA
    Presented in part by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro, of American Gladiator fame, the Gladiator Rock'n Run is a unique and challenging event, pairing an obstacle-heavy running course with post-race entertainment, including beer, music, and food. Those prepared to race must dance through tires, army-crawl through mud, and clamber up rope ladders to avoid barrels thrown by giant apes. The roar of spectators rings throughout the course as bystanders cheer on runners to inspire strong finishes.

  • RunEC
    St. Patrick's Day half-marathon. The Green Mile fun run. The Craft Beer Invitational. These are just a few of the events RunEC hosts with the community in mind. The non-profit organization raises funds for East County while drawing guests to the region to enjoy the surroundings and to interact with fellow residents. Another perk of RunEC's events: raising funds for local charities, many of which support adults with developmental disabilities.

  • Gladiator Rock'n Run PASADENA
    Presented in part by Dan Clark, also known as Nitro, of American Gladiator fame, the Gladiator Rock'n Run 6K pairs an obstacle-heavy running course with post-race entertainment, including beer, music, and food. Six kilometers’ worth of collective scampering awaits participants as muscle-testing obstacles impede progress to the finish line. Those prepared to race must dance through tires, army-crawl through mud, and clamber up rope ladders to avoid barrels thrown by giant apes. The roar of spectators rings throughout the course as bystanders cheer on runners to inspire strong finishes. Gladiator Rock'n Run proceeds go toward a good cause, helping to raise money for TACA (Talk About Curing Autism), an organization that provides education, support, and information to aid parents in helping their children diagnosed with autism.

  • Red Frog Events
    In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music. The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.
