Directions to Catalina State Park 

From the south: take Oracle Rd six miles north of Ina Rd. and turn right at Catalina State Park.  The start line & parking lot are 1.8 miles at the end of the main road.

From the north: take Oracle Rd. south one-half mile south of Tangerine Rd.  Turn left into the park.   The start line & parking lot are 1.8 miles at the end of the main road.

Park Entry Passes: all participants will be required to purchase a $7.00 parking pass at sign-up or at packet pick-up at Fleet Feet (cash or check only), as we will not be providing shuttle bus service.  If you already have a state park pass, there is no need to buy one from us. To move traffic more quickly through the park entry, we ask that you buy the one-day pass from us. Parking will be available in the main lot and on the road shoulders.

Changing Events:  this is extremely important.  Changing distances must be done by September 23 by emailing the race director at everyoneruns@comcast.net Changing events without notifying anyone will cause a huge mess with our ability to provide results.  If you do switch distances after the start of the race, your time will not count for overall and age group awards.  Please remember that the 9.5 miler is only for runners.  You are always welcome to walk the 5k. 

Course directions: 

·        The start/finish line is in front of the main parking lot, which is at the end of the park’s main road.  You’ll start on a very short portion of the main road straight to the entry to the Nature Trail (yes, big hill first!), which you will run/walk counter-clockwise.  

·        After descending the Nature trail, you will go right onto the Bridal Trail.  9.5 milers will then head to and out-and-back on the 50 Year Trail.   5k runners/walkers will turnaround at the end of the Bridal Trail and head back on Bridal to the finish.  9.5 milers, when finished with the 50 Year out-and-back, will return to the finish via the Bridal Trail.

·        You will not get lost, as long as you pay attention to our directional markers and course monitors.

·        NEVER run up or down a wash and you’ll be on the course! You will only cross washes, never run up or down.  Finally, there will be some areas of traffic on the course.  Please do not run or walk 2-3 across and always listen to course monitors for instructions.

Water Stations: all participants should carry their own water.  We will have bottled water on the Bridal Trail and at the beginning of the 50 Year Trail. If you take a bottle, it is your responsibility to carry it throughout the race.  No littering please!

Timing: all timing will be done with chip timing.  Your chip will be attached to the back of your race bib.  If you do not wear your bib you will not receive a time and you will not be eligible to win an overall or age group award. Please remember to wear your bib on the front of your body.  

Headsets/Music: If you choose to wear headsets you implicitly agree that you are using it your own risk.  It is incredibly important for you to hear others approaching and asking to pass, so please keep the volume at a level that will allow others to hear you. Safety is our #1 concern.  

Shirts: participant finisher shirts will be handed out to you before and after the race.  Unfortunately, we cannot change sizes at the finish.  This will ensure that everyone gets what they ordered.  You are welcome to ask when the race is complete.

Post-race food, drink: when you hit the finish-line grab yourself a free bottle of water and enjoy our always free Mexican breakfast courtesy of Everyone Runs (for paid participants only).  We will never close the course.  Food, drink and friendly faces will await you no matter when you finish!  

Awards: Our awards ceremony will be in-person as each event concludes/

·        Overall and age group awards will be for male and female overall 1st, 2nd & 3rd and in five-year male and female age groups.  

·        Exact age groups for both events, specifically for ages 19 and younger and 80+, will be determined based on the number of runners in those age groups and will be decided fairly and at our discretion. 

Race results will be posted no later than noon at www.everyoneruns.net.

For fast viewing of your finish time, simply enable participant tracking on our Run Sign Up page and you will have your result sent immediately to your phone!
