Westfield Valencia Town Center

The City of Santa Clarita is excited to welcome back the Santa Clarita Marathon on Sunday, November 4 at 7  a.m.  The race event will include a marathon as well as a half marathon, 5K run, Mayor’s Walk, and Kid’s K fun run, each beginning at various times and locations around the Westfield Valencia Town Center.

The City’s marathon, which is an official qualifying race for the Boston Marathon, is a challenging race designed to test the physical boundaries of the human body while promoting health and fitness among residents. This year, the race will use new trails along the San Francisquito Creek, which will provide scenic views and reduce the amount of street closure on McBean Parkway. Continue reading

In anticipation of the event, the City will also host a pre-race Health and Fitness Expo from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 3, at the Hyatt Regency Valencia, located on Town Center Drive. The free Expo will feature various health-related vendors, running gear, and information booths.  Participants will also be able to register for the race as well as picking up race bibs and T-shirts.

In addition to bibs and t-shirts, event participants will receive a link to “Virtual Race Bag” containing online information about the Santa Clarita Marathon as well as special offers from participating businesses and sponsors.

To participate in the Santa Clarita Marathon or other race events, community members can register online, by mail or in person at the Fitness Expo. Participants who register online will save $3 processing fee and can pick up their race bibs at the Expo.  Online registration is open now through Sunday, October 28.  Mail-in registration packets must be postmarked by Monday, October 22.  Registration will not be offered the day of the race.
