Did you know that by participating in the Rockin’ The Desert Mud Run, you are contributing to an amazing non-profit program?  The Apple Valley Police Activities League (A.V.P.A.L.) was founded in 2003, and was created to unite law enforcement and communities by providing youth programs which develop discipline, positive self-image, mutual trust and respect.  Each year, A.V.P.A.L. works with about 200 kids…think about that…200 kids!  That’s 200 lives that are being led in the right direction, given a leg-up in the world.  What a difference that makes in one community!

You’ll run along the 101 free­way in Nye­land Acres, near Oxnard. The run­ners fol­low a flat and fast course, along the fra­grant straw­berry fields, through Downtown Oxnard and the Henry T. Oxnard Historic District dec­o­rated for the hol­i­days, to the beach, and fin­ish at Chan­nel Islands Har­bor.

What started in 2003 as a toy drive to cel­e­brate the relo­ca­tion of the world’s largest Santa Claus from Carpinteria to Oxnard has grown into a robust run­ning event, toy drive, com­mu­nity fundraiser, and holiday season celebration.

San Diego Holiday Half @ Hotel Karlan
Dec 15 all-day

The San Diego Holiday Half Marathon is a fast 13.1 mile course that starts on Penasquitos Drive in front of the Hotel Karlan (formerly, the Doubletree Golf Resort) then travels SW along Carmel Mountain Rd (your only ‘real’ hill at mile 1.5), along the 56 bike path and finishes at the beautiful Torrey Pines State Beach (pictured above!). The race includes a 711-foot net elevation drop along the rolling downhill bike path, which also makes it a personal best candidate. This popular winter half has been a sell out event every year and sure to sell out for 201. Get your end of the year PR!!!
