Medals for the Run in the New Year 5k/10k/Half Marathon in Huntington Beach, CA

Write your New Year’s resolution on the back of the Run in the New Year 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon racing event. 

PR Chasers. Flat, fast, and paved, this half-marathon course is ideal for those looking to PR before entering the new year. 

Taking place on a wide State park path, avid runners, joggers, and first-time walkers can enjoy the sights and sounds around them, all while sporting their best Christmas costume; that’s right, this is a themed race! 

Starting at 8:00 a.m., the half-marathon participants kick off the race by setting off on a two-loop course that runs along the beach’s bike path at Bolsa Chica. Spectator-friendly and aid stations every 1.5 miles, this is a great community even for family and friends alike. 

Starting at the Warner Avenue roundabout, runners head south toward Dog Beach. Turning around at the marked point, runners then head North toward the Warner Avenue roundabout. Repeat this loop twice to finish. 

With a custom cast finisher’s medal and bib awarded to those who cross the finish line successfully, there are more reasons than one to give it your best on the course. After the race, be sure to stick around for SoCal’s “Healthiest Live Party” with live bands and more to enjoy. 

Oh, and don’t forget about the post-race pancakes provided to you by Kiwanis Club.
