What Runners Are Saying...

Our races are all about the runners and the experience they have with our race. After every race, we do a feedback survey to help us understand how we did, how we can improve our future races and hear what the runners thought about their experience.

We got a ton of responses and great feedback. Overall it is clear from the ratings that everyone had an awesome experience. But don't take our word for it. Read a few of the testimonials below directly from the runners. Huge thank you to all the runners and volunteers who participated, this race would not be possible without you!

What a fun local race! From the free race photos, free ice cream, great medals, free day of packet pick-up and awesome aid stations there's a reason I plan to keep my legacy status for this race going for a very long time!

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!

This was my 3rd year running the Sugar Daddy Half Marathon and 3rd year loving it. The race has great energy from start to finish. The enthusiasm of the volunteers brings a lot to the aid stations. The medals are always awesome. And hey...who doesn't love ice cream?

This was my first 10K and I did not know what to expect. I have been running less than a year but you all made me feel very welcome and the competition was exciting and friendly. Looking forward to next year. I have recommended this to all my friends.

Thank you so much for making an event close to Fathers day. Being a father of three it's not easy to find an running event within the Santa Clarita area close to fathers day. This is an event that I would definitely keep running. I hope to see this event every year.

What a fun, local race. Everything was well organized, the course was clearly marked, well stocked/supplied/planned aid stations, great running community!! Loved the ice cream at the end on such a hot day. Very happy to have been a legacy runner for the inaugural event!! And placing first in my age group was very rewarding!! Looking forward to next year's race! In the meantime, excited to run the Spacerock Trail Half Marathon in October!!

Sugar Daddy Run was great fun for us! There wasn't any pressure to hurry up (except from the sun), so we could enjoy the view of the route we ran, and we really loved crossing the Iron Horse Bridge! The event was very well organized, enjoyable, good tunes, great medal/shirts, pleasant race staff/volunteers, and worth starting our day in this fun atmosphere. Thanks y'all! Can't wait to do this again next year! 🙂

When I do a run I try to remember to have confidence in my abilities, know that I am only competing against myself, and to enjoy the scenery.

It was a beautiful day to enjoy the scenery during the 5k, plus my 4-year-old son had a blast as he ran his second "grown up race!" Great atmosphere and well-organized, too!
