Join Irvine Half Marathon

The Annual Southern California Half Marathon and 5K race will be held in January, in the Woodbridge area of Irvine. Races will begin at 8:00am for the 5K, Half Marathon, and 18 Mile Run. At 10:00am, a Kids Run will be held. We offer chip timing. You can register online. Our course winds through the beautiful Irvine Take a run around the course known to locals as "inside the loop" at the Southern California Half Marathon & 5K, which celebrates its 22nd annual running in 2013 as the official warm-up road race for other California races like the Los Angeles Marathon, the O.C. Marathon and the Surf City Marathon later in the year.

Following a route through the area known as the Woodbridge Loop, the Southern California Half takes runners on a mostly flat (though occasionally hilly) course through suburban neighborhoods, city park areas and along the waters of the San Diego Creek.Runners begin their race with a starting time of 8:00 AM at the Woodbridge Village Shopping Center on Barranca Parkway and Lake Road, and follow an out-and-back course that winds along a number of city streets, including the Barranca Parkway, Valley Oak Drive, San Canyon Avenue and Laguna Canyon Road. Along the way, runners will run past or through parks and greenspace areas including Valley Oak Park, Oak Creek Community Park and the Woodbridge Community Park, and will run entirely on paved surfaces (both streets and creekside trails) throughout the race.

Race organizers allow a four-hour time limit for those running in the half marathon to receive finishers’ medals and have their results counted in the race’s official statistics. For those who prefer a shorter race distance, the event also hosts a 5K run (around the neighborhood known as the "Yale loop") and a one-mile run for children, around North Lake.Run as a benefit for local nonprofit organizations including Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities and the local Woodbridge High School athletic program, the race has seen its popularity surge in recent years, growing from a field of about 950 runners at its inaugural running to a field of more than 5,000 runners in both races combined at the event’s 2011 running.
