This is an odd one. it’s a 12K with the option to do a bonus 3K and earn a second medal. It is also a part of the SF Original Race Series challenge. This race isn’t typical in a lot of ways. for 2018 there were about 35,000 participants! Bring cash for on course. People are selling food and booze the entire way. Also be prepared for nudity! Lots and lots of nudity. 😉 Everyone was super nice and a very friendly race. Plan ahead and stay for the after part at the finish line.

This course is nothing but hills! Be prepared! Early in the race, about mile 5ish, you “run” up Torrey Pines. Great course support and amazing views. This is point to point so plan ahead race morning. For $20 you can pick up your bib race morning. This is the second race in the Triple Crown series. I will be back in 2019 to try and get a better time 🙂

This is the most difficult course that Rock It offers but it is totally worth it. This is a smaller race but offers a lot of great swag and tons of raffle prizes after the race. Two different distances were offered, 6K and 10miles. The marking for this race is a very very small lot. There is plenty of parking but if you don’t get there early you make have to walk almost a mile to the start line.

This was a really fund race. They allowed race morning bib pick up. The street closures start at 5:30am so plan ahead! I stayed for the last runner. It was nice to see how much extra food they had. The last runner had the same food selection as the first runners in. Plenty of course support. Mostly an out and back course. Lot of First Respondents and Officers in full uniform. Great race!

Must pick up bib at expo (they allow friends with a waiver) or pay $20 for race day pick up. Park early. Streets close early. This race offers nice legacy status goodies starting at year 3. Really pretty course mostly along the bay areas. Really BIG hill about mile 9. Fun but challenging race. Earn a challenge medal if you do this and the Mammoth race. Will be back for 2019.

Rock It Racing is a smaller company that puts on trial runs around So Cal. The courses are perfect for runners just starting out on trails. The longer distances are great for established trail runners looking for a fun challenge. The medals and race swag are always really fun! I do a few of these races every year!

I’ve ran this race several times now. It’s as flat of a course as you’ll ever run. Slight hill about mile 4-6. This year they changed the course up and instead of allowing runners on both sides of the road when we turn right to go up this “hill” we were all crowded onto one side. The race felt very very crowded until about mile 6. This is a mostly out and back course. Run this OC, in May and Long Beach in October to earn the Beach Cities Challenge Medal. This race also has a challenge with any distance of the San Francisco 1/2 or full marathon in July.

This is the first race in the Triple Crown series. All 3 races are around the San Diego area. You must pick up your bib or have pay a race day fee of $20. So plan ahead. They did allow others to pick up bibs for you if they had a copy of your ID. Plenty of parking. This race also offers a full marathon and 5K as well as the 1/2 option.

Very hilly. Started a bit latter in the morning so it was a bit warm. Beautiful beach scenery along the entire course.
Will be back in 2018.

This race challenge covers 4 days. 5k, 10K, 1/2, and full. Very very early mornings. Be sure to get to the corrals early as the 1/2 and full are about 1.6 mile walk from the staging area. Be prepared to wait up to 1.5 to 2 hours depending on how far back in the corrals you are. Go slow and this is a very long challenge. Totally fun and will do again in a few years 😀

Super fun race. They do NOT offer race morning pick up but you are able to pick up friends bibs. Usually a pretty cold race but this year, 2017, was a bit on the warm side. Park at the finish and take the shuttle to the start. The finish is at Torey Pines and the lot is small so get there early.
Legacy jacket once you’ve run 5 years in a row. A challenge medal is offered if you also run the SD Craft Classic in the same year (also a super fun race). I’ll be back in 2018!

This race offers two races for a weekend challenge. 5k on Saturday and 1/2 on Sunday. BE SURE TO KEEP YOUR PARKING TICKET if you keep your parking ticket you can use it for both days and only have to pay for parking once!
I find this course challenging but super fun. 2017 was my 5th year running it. If you run 3 years in a row you become a member of the Penguin Club and every year after that you get a new pin with a different penguin on it. Will be back for 2018!

This is the second year I’ve ran the RIverside location. LaceUp goes all out with the holiday theme and it’s super fun for the entire family. The course is out and back and ends at a park.
Plan to get there a bit early race morning. They suggest you park about a mile away but they do offer shuttle service before and after the race.
Super fun! Candy canes at the finish along with food that is included with every race entry. There are usually about 5 food trucks to choose from for your free meal.

This is a really nice flat course. It’s out and back.
My main advise would be to rent a car. The area this race is in, Cocoa Beach, FL, is very spread out and having a car is super helpful. That being said if you stay at a host hotel race morning shuttle service is provided and I’ve never had a problem with it.
The locals are super fun! Along the half there are always about 3-4 alcohol stations. Super fun.
Nice big medals. They also usually offer multi year challenges. 2021 will be the 50th anniversary for this race.

This was a really nice race. There were several points along the course where cars were allowed to drive in the street. At one point there were trying to push the runners on the sidewalk to get them out of the way of the on coming cars. Also, because parking in general is terrible in this area cars were parked on both sides of the street for the entire course. This made some of the turns a little tricky since the road became narrow. The roads were also not very well maintained. Be weary of large pot holes!

In general this was a nice race. Weather this year was perfect. If you complete any distance at the San Francisco 1/2 you’ll receive a challenge medal.

This was a new course for 2017. It was point to point so be sure to plan transportation accordingly. I would also recommend gloves or toss away clothes for the start. It’s early and can be chilly further up. Lots of goodies at the finish are included with the race entry. Lines for food tended to be a bit long but totally worth the wait. This is also part of a series. If you do all 4 of their locations in one year you’ll ear a challenge medal! Totally going to do this one again in 2018.

The course was very flat and is basically an out and back. There was shade on the way out but coming back temperatures were over 90 deg F. There was plenty of water and Gatorade. They did not run out! There were constantly cops and course support asking if runners needed a lift or were ok to continue. They actually kept the finish line open another 30 min to let people finish.

Great race. You get a bottle of wine with the 1/2 or full. There was an option to do a 5K or 10K the day before to earn a challenge medal. This race is a bit on the pricey side so plan ahead.

This race starts a little latter than normal since it is the second 1/2 of the full. Be sure to bring a throw away shirt or space blanket to the start. It’s cold standing around but you warm up fast when you start running.

Park at the finish and be sure to be on the first bus to the start. It was about a 30 min drive.

Great course and great course support. I’m doing the full in 2018.

The course has changed a bit from the year before. A few hills seem to have been taken out. Still a really hard, challenging but fun race.

Get there early as you have to park at the finish and shuttle to the start. They offer gear check so you don’t have to get rid of your jacket.

The race ends at a brewery so one beer per bib and more inside if you’d like to pay for it.

Do this race and the SD Holiday 1/2 in December to earn a challenge medal.

This is the first year Vacation Races put on a race at this location. First 5 miles are up then the rest is downhill with amazing views of Glacier National Park.

Be prepared to drive! Depending on where you stay you’re either right at the shuttle stop for the race for a 2 hour drive away. If you’re a 2 hour drive from the shuttle start you’ll be closer to better restaurants and activities. I stayed in Browning. It wasn’t that bad but the nearest real grocery store was about 100 miles away.

I’ve done this race for 4 years now because it is a club race. I’m not really a fan due to this course and hills. It’s a point to point but the bus system at the finish line always runs pretty smoothly. The finish line for the 1/2 is a sharp up hill followed immediately by a sharp left turn. Not the best way to finish a race.

Super hard but totally worth it for the views. This is a smaller race so the course doesn’t get too crowded. Plan ahead and get there early! Parking is super limited and you may get stuck walking for about 15 minutes to the start. Totally going to do this one again next year.

This is not a race you can just get up and do. I highly recommend doing some endurance training. The distances aren’t that bad if you’re doing a regular team of 12 runners. It’s the lack of sleep and being in a van that will kill it.

Read the pre-race materiel! There is a lot of good tips and tricks that first time runners should follow. Fun race! Will totally do again next year!

This was my third attempt at LA. I am officially done with this course.

There were major issues at the shuttles to the start line. Took about an hour to get near the front. They were trying to do a security check through everyone’s bags/fuel vests. When they finally realized it was taking too long they started handing out red bands (that meant they had checked your bag) to everyone and told them to go the front of the line. Runners were then running to the buses in an almost panicked fashion. Very very stressful right before the race. I hope they fix it before next year.

Right before mile 9 there is a huge looooong hill. The race directors even put a timing mat at the bottom and top so you can see how you do. Super fun race. They give extra swag for every additional year you participate. A nice jacket a year 5.
You can pay extra to have race morning pick up. Otherwise you’ll have to drive to San Diego the day before to pick up your bib. If you’re not running the 1/2 get to the start early! There is a relay and 5K. These runners have to be bused to their starting lines.
Great race. Will be doing it again in 2018.

This race started and ended at the Grove in LA. They offer race morning pick up of bib and goodies.

This series is to remember first responders. There were cadets from each branch and they ran the 10K in formation. Really neat to watch them all go by. The 10K and 1/2 started together so it was a bit crowded the first 3ish miles. I would consider this course hilly. It was challenging but still doable and fun.

When you pick up your bib you also get to choose a coin. I believe there were 6 coins in total and each one honored a different first responder team. LAPD, LAFD and so on. You add the coin to the center of your medal. So you could potential have 6 different medals.

This is the fourth year I’ve done this race. The first year with a new company putting it on. Be sure to plan ahead. Parking can take a while since most runners have to park a ways away and get bused to the start. This year more than ever it felt a bit crowded. The crowd never really thinned out. I thought they could have allowed more time in between corrals. Great beach views and super fun vibe. Do this with OC in May and Long Beach in October and earn extra bling.

This was race two in the Conquer LA series. Pasadena is VERY hilly so please be prepared for those! Also, this was an inaugural year so there were some common first race issues. MANY people showed up late and they allowed people to park, which was right across the race course. So they waited for all the cars, which made the race about 25 minutes late. It was also cold and raining. But the race directors do not have control over this. They did the best they could to make it a fun finish. Mylar blankets for everyone and bottled water and snacks. I am very willing to do this race again in 2018.

This is always a fun weekend. Because it’s Disney the races themselves are a bit expensive and sell out quickly. You have to sign up for the challenge to earn the challenge medal. If you sign up for the 10k and 1/2 separately you will NOT earn the medal.

Both races started at 5:30am in 2017. So be prepared to get up early! Parking is super easy and about $18 for the Disney parking structure.

Be sure to read the costume rules. They’ve changed over the years. But be sure to dress up and get in the spirit of things!

All the medals are hand made by local residents. Super chilly start. It was around 20 Deg so pack warm! There were signs all around the neighborhood marking the actual route. So looks like it’s the same route most years. Due to weather I didn’t get to look around the area before or after the race. I’m hoping to go back in a few years and try this again. First Light offers a back to back challenge with Mississippi Blues. Due to weather, Mississippi Blues had to cancel in 2017. I was happy I was able to finish one race for this weekend.

I’ve run this race for 3 years now. It’s always super cold at the start so be sure to bring a space blanket. It’s a point to point race so get there early and park at the finish and take the shuttle to the start. The parking lot is super small and fills up by 5:30/5:45.

It’s a downhill and fast race. So be ready to set a PR! The past few years the pacers have been pretty off and usually finish pretty far ahead of their times. So make sure you have a GPS watch of some kind on and stick to your own pace. This race ends at Tory Pines Beach!

Great race! Will be running again next year!

I’ve run this race 4 years in a row now. I keep coming back because the course is just challenging enough to make it fun. The tech shirt has been some version of an “ugly” sweater for the past few years. The medal stays the same year to year. If you do this race 3 years in a row you become a member of the Penguin Club. Years 4-10 you earn a new penguin pin each year with a different type of penguin. Love this race and going to do it as long as I can 🙂

I believe this is the third year this series has been going on. The course was rolling hills pretty much the entire time. Mostly an out and back with a small loop around a really nice neighborhood around mile 5. The medal was really nice and big. If you complete all four races they put on you get a challenge medal. Free food and beer at the finish line for every runner, no matter what distance you ran. There’s usually about 4 food trucks to choose from and sometimes it can be hard to choose because they’re all so good! Really excited to run more of these next year. I’m hoping to do all 4 and get the challenge medal next time.

The winning full marathon time for 2016 was 2:38 and change!

This is an out and back course. The half marathon is the second half of the full marathon. You run along the coast of Cocoa beach so the views are nice. Bur keep in mind this is Fl in November. Humidity for this race is usually around 70%.

The hotels are about an hour from MCO (Orlando International) so a car rental is a must. Best to share costs with people. This is a popular race. 2016 was the 45th anniversary of this race :).

I plan on being back next year!

This was my very first trail half and I would also rate this my most difficult half to date.
The race starts late enough 8AM for the full 8:25 for the half, that you could take the boat over race morning. I suggest renting a house for the weekend or night to make it a bit more relaxing. The boat was about $70 round trip. So this race was a bit on the expensive side as well. Since it is an island everything is expensive and the restaurants charge about a dollar for small bottle of water…or you can go buy bottles by the liter at the super small grocery store 🙂
This is a one and one for me. But I did have a great weekend and glad I gave it a try.

You get to run through the park for the entire race. They take the runners around the back of the parks which can be fun. Great medal and the cleanest porta-potties you’ll ever use! Once you leave the parks, about mile 4, run out and back to Angle stadium which isn’t a great view but fun to run on the field.

This was my second Ragnar ever. Such an amazing experience!!! I choose to run the most miles and hardest leg. It was the most challenging run I’ve ever done and I can’t wait to do it again. My first leg was 11.2 miles on “hard trail”. It was really just a super long access road covered in super loose gravel/rocks. Some people were able to run it I was not. The entire race was full sun with no trees for shade. I would totally recommend this race to anyone looking for a challenge!

They made a huge course change for 2016. In general I liked it. There were more rolling hills than before and the last 8 miles or so were out and back. Also they had corrals…were all released at one time so there was a lot of course congestion the entire course.

That being said I’ve done this race 4 years in a row and I hope they bring it back for 2017. I was told that they’re having permit/course issues. They said they might move it to Hollywood but they would keep it on the same day.

Super flat and fast course along the beach. The LaceUp series consists of 4 races and if you complete any distance at each race you earn a pretty sweet challenge medal.
They also offered a challenge medal if you completed the Foothill 5K earlier in the year.
Each race entry comes with a free beer and choice of food truck meal at the finish. So far each race has had about 3 food trucks to choose from. Anything from the Grill Cheese truck to a pizza, to burgers, to a super tasty juice truck.
