You are NOT going to want to miss out on this half marathon! Not only will you start and finish your run at California's newest university campus, all finishers receive a gargantuan finisher's medal with custom ribbon, a hi-tech gender specific t-shirt, a finisher's breakfast, and a chance to compete for the coolest, most unique age-group trophies anywhere -- 3 deep in every age category!! Our age-group trophies can't be replicated anywhere: they are custom-designed, created locally, and entirely one-of-a-kind!!
