    This event has a 10K partial trail race, 5K, and option to do both dubbed the “Hero Race”, it’s located at Cal State University-Channel Islands in Camarillo. I did the Hero Race in 2015 and the 5K this year. This event always sells out a few days before race day, which is why I missed out last year. Proceeds from the event benefit the Autism Society of Ventura County. Packet pickup was at Road Runner Sports in Thousand Oaks on Saturday with the option for race day pickup as well. I grabbed mine Saturday on the way to LA for a concert. Participants received a bib with timing chip (timing by Vendurance.com), soft cotton t-shirt, and choice of a pair of costume sunglasses. I wanted the minion glasses, but my wife vetoed so she could get the pink power ranger ones.

    The 10K started Sunday at 7:00, which meant you needed to run a decent pace if you signed up for the 5K starting at 8:30. Parking was quick and easy with plenty of volunteers directing traffic. It was about a 10 minute walk to the start area, perfect time for a quick warm-up. The start and finish area are a short distance apart to cut down on crowding since this is a large event, around 200 for the 10K and 2,000 for the 5K. The 5K was delayed about 20 minutes while officials made sure the course was clear of traffic and 10K’ers. The weather was nice, but no cloud cover and I forgot my visor, so I was baking before it even started, totally my fault. The course is almost completely flat with a few small inclines that turn around immediately and drop back down. There were two water stations, more than enough for a 5K. At the finish festival there were vendors and booths supporting the Autism Society. Results were posted near the finish and available online as well. Race bibs had tickets for pancakes and a small jamba juice. Starbucks also had free iced coffee which was awesome after a warm race! The medal is always shaped like a puzzle piece so it can connect to previous medals, only difference is the lanyard design. This is one of the best events in Ventura County and I’ll definitely be back next year.

    Definitely sounds like an awesome event for a great cause, and love the puzzle piece medal. Thanks for the great review, Brett!
