- 3 miles/5K, 6 miles/10K, 13.1/Half Marathon
- Road Race
I absolutely love the Lace Up series, and was excited to run Irvine for the first time this year. The half was not offered this year, just the 5/10Ks. Parking is easy at the park, and even when it overflows there is a church and shopping center nearby for easy overflow.
Course is not super thrilling, but runs along the San Diego Creek Trail, so lots of runners and cyclists out on race morning. Easy course, just a few inclines as you make your way under road bridges or back over some parts of the trail, but most worthy of a PR if you want!
Lace Up is a top-notch race company. All race entries include an awesome medal, beer garden ticket AND food truck ticket. Computers are available at the Lexus booth for instant race results, in addition to rce podiums for some fun photo opportunities! There are also chances to earn more swag at vendor booths, instanly print your Instagram posts, and other fun, free chances for involvement. Looking forward to Palos Verdes in a few weeks!
