Race officials reserve the right to disqualify or remove any participant whose activity may be unsafe and post potential harm to themselves and/or other participants. For the safety of all, as well as, insurance reasons THE FOLLOWING ARE PROHIBITED by participants for use on the race course: skates, roller shoes, bicycles, scooters, skateboards and any gas or electrical operated vehicles. Additionally, PETS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED in either the 5K or 10K due to insurance restrictions.
For timing and permit reasons THE 10K IS A RUN ONLY event. Walkers are NOT PERMITTED. Failure to abide by any of these rules can result in disqualification and removal from the Run.
Due to the upfront nature of event costs, WE CANNOT OFFER REFUNDS, or deferrals. Make sure that you are good to go when you sign up!
USA Track & Field Sanctioned Event:
We are proud to announce that the El Segundo Run for Education presented by BIG 5 Sporting Goods is a full USA Track and Field sanctioned event (Sanction Number: 14-33-400) with both the 5K and 10K courses having been certified by the USA Track and Field Road Racing Technical Council (Certification Codes CA11024RS and CA12117RS).
Starting Line Corrals:
In an effort to provide every one of our participants with as comfortable a run as possible, Starting Line Corrals will be enforced at this yearās event. The corral system assures a smooth and safe start by lining up participants of similar pace in the same area.
Runners who identify themselves as Elite Male (<18:20 5K or <38:00 10K) or Elite Female (<19:50 5K or <40:00 10K) during registration will qualify for the seeded corral up front. All other participants are asked to line up in the appropriate corrals. Large signs identifying each corral will be displayed along the starting line area. Please be courteous and look for the corral that fits you best.
Corral A: Elite Runners
Corral B: General Runners
Corral C: General Walkers
Corral D: Walkers with Strollers
YES, we have FINISHER MEDALS FOR EVERYONE this year! Supplies are limited based on which race you participate in (5K, 10K, Kids Fun Run) but we should have enough to ensure everyone receives something.
Register early: Course is limited to 3,000 participants.
10K Course Change
For 2014 the 10K course has been adjusted to omit Grand Avenue's large hill and thus creates a faster route. The course is now a tighter 2nd loop with only a slight modification near Mile 4.
