Valencia Elementary Students and 1,000's of other students throughout Orange County are joining the Kids Run the OC Training Program!

What is

KIDS Run the OC?


The Valencia PTA is offering the Kids Run the OC Training Program to Valencia students, 1st through 6th grade (Kindergarten siblings welcome). There is a $29 fee that is paid directly to the OC Marathon and a $10 team t-shirt fee (optional) paid to the Valencia Elementary PTA.

Training sessions start Monday, February 26th, and will take place each Monday after school from 2:45 - 3:45 pm through March 12th. Practices will switch to Wednesdays on March 21st through May 2nd, the Wednesday before the marathon on Saturday, May 5th. The kids will have practiced running the mile and will have gained the confidence and physical ability to successfully complete the event. Each runner will receive a medal upon completing their "marathon".

Registration is now open (see below) and will close on MARCH 1st. Upon registration, more details will follow regarding training and the event.
