Snow at the start line and a snowflake medal at the finish makes this is a unique Southern California race. Get into the spirit of the season at the Holiday Half Marathon on Sunday, December 11.
The Holiday Half Marathon 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 (mile ~3.5), runners will exit the fairgrounds and head toward Frank G. Bonelli Park. On the way, they will pass the Brackett Airfield, home to Air Force Auxiliary Squadron 64. Miles 5 through 10 provide beautiful views of Puddingstone Lake and challenge runners with gently rolling hills. The return trip takes runners back by the airfield, once more down the drag strip, and into the fairgrounds for a fast finish.
