Dana Point Events


Renegade Racing is going all-out this Halloween and introducing the Terrifying-10-Miler and Spooky 5K & 10K to Salt Creek Beach Park. We didn’t forget the kids… Bring them out for the Super Hero ½ Mile Kids Run. You’ll have a “Howling” good time running along the Salt Creek Regional Corridor Path. Participants will have amazing views of wilderness areas, beach and, of course spooks, ghosts and goblins along the course. All participants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite Halloween or Super Hero costume. There will be costume contests, pumpkin decorating contests, pumpkin patch, expo booths and more at the start-finish All-Hallows Festival.  Aid stations will have tricks and treats to keep you in the holiday mood.

The race has a limited field of 1000 so don’t drag your feet because you just might miss out on this great event.

Why 10 Miles? 10 miles is the perfect distance to bridge up from a 10K to Half Marathon. Face it, it’s a long way to make that jump but Renegade Racing is going to give you the perfect race to prepare for your first or next Half Marathon. If you are an experienced runner you’ll love that this race has enough challenge to make your next half marathon seem like a piece of cake. Participants will enjoy amazing canyon and ocean views from the whole course. The Terrifying 10 Miler generally is uphill out to the 5 mile turn around but you will experience bumps throughout this out-n-back course. You’ll enjoy 2365 terrifying feet of elevation gain over the whole course. Don’t worry because you’ll be supported by the best aid stations in the world with water, electrolyte, Halloween candy, ghosts and goblins.

All Terrifying 10 Milers will get a commemorative finisher’s medal, long-sleeve technical fabric tech shirt with ¼ zip and trick or treat goody bag.

You will have a Spooktacular experience with the Spooky 5K & 10K Runs. You’ll enjoy some of the same canyon and ocean views that the 10 Milers have but with more manageable distances. Have you run in costume yet? This is your perfect chance to join in on the fun. Ghosts and goblins will provide you encouragement to keep going all along the way… you won’t want to be left behind.

All Spooky Runners will get a commemorative finisher’s medal and T-shirt, plus a trick or treat bag goody.

2014_Halloween-Terrifying-Ten_medal-kidsrunSuper Hero ½ Mile Kids Run

Can you imagine hundreds of kids dressed in their favorite super hero costumes heading out on a ½ mile run? It’s a picture you can’t miss! This nearly flat ½ mile run will start and finish at the same point making it easy for parents to photograph their kids at the start and finish. Parents can run with their children if they like and don’t have to be entered into the event to do so (Parents who are not registered for one of the events will still need to sign a participant waiver and will not be eligible for finisher’s medals).

Super Hero ½ Mile Kids Run participants will get a commemorative finisher’s medal, “Kid’s Sized” T-shirt and trick or treat goody bag. This fun run is good for children aged 4-11 who are not ready for the longer distances.
