NEXT GENERATION

As runners, we are role models and inspiration for our children to be active and healthy. It's great for them to see us run races and push ourselves out of our comfort zone to accomplish our goals.  The Kids Fun Run is a short 500-meter race that is just for kids ages 3-12 years old. Starting before the Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K, allowing parents, family, and friends to cheer them from start to finish. Giving them a taste of the race energy and hopefully inspiring them to enjoy running and becoming the next generation of awesome runners in our community!

BLING BLING

When crossing the finish line you can always expect to receive an awesome finisher medal. A medal that was custom designed to be fun, creative, and special just for the Sugar Daddy Race.  Every year our medals change, you won't get a boring generic medal here.

Plus if you are a returning Legacy Club runner you'll receive a unique bonus item to commemorate your legacy status. Jump over our Swag page to view previous year's medals and goodies.

SWEET FINISH

In addition to earning an awesome medal as you cross the finish line, runners are rewarded with FREE ice cream to help them cool down.  This is in addition to the finish line water and refreshments you can always expect at our races. Over the past 6-years, Ben & Jerry's has been providing runners with their awesome dairy and dairy-free ice cream flavors to enjoy.

THE BEST SUPPORT

According to past runners, we have some of the best aid stations in the industry. Not just the stations, but hands down the best volunteers who take time to give back and make your race experience awesome.

The Sugar Daddy Race course features 6 stations total and depending on which distance you are running you'll hit anywhere from 1 to 7 stations during your run.  Our stations keep runners fueled with water, electrolytes from our hydration sponsor Gnarly Nutrition, gels, chews, salt capsules, snacks, and more to keep you going strong from start to finish.

Not running the race? See how much fun it is to support the runners as a volunteer!

HISTORIC BRIDGE

The Sugar Daddy Race course follows the paved paseos and trails along the Santa Clara River giving runners beautiful views of the river bed with its local native flora and the greater Santa Clarita Valley. The final stretch has all runners finishing across the historic Iron Horse Bridge to provide for an exhilarating experience running across the bridge and into the finish line.

The bridge was built in 1898 and was featured in numerous motion pictures including "The Lost Boys" and "Throw Momma from the Train". In 2012 it was repurposed as part of the Santa Clarita trails and paseos. It makes for a very memorable finish experience.

One of the perks of living in Valencia are these awesome running trails! I had to sign up and join runners that run for the joy of running. The swag was great and I loved the free pictures! All I had to do was show up and enjoy the run. I will definitely run this again!
