Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
Run it…hike it…rock it! Challenge yourself to a 5K Half Marathon run or hike, and enjoy the beauty of this preserve hidden among the sandstone canyons of the western coastal Santa Ana Mountains. Caspers Wilderness Park’s many valleys are complemented by groves of native Coastal Live Oak and awesome strands of sycamore. Seasonal wildflowers add to the beauty. Take it all in with the Elves on Trails 5K or Half Marathon! All finishers receive a medal, t-shirt, and other goodies!
