10K Race

presented by the
Scripps Ranch Old Pros

The fastest 10K in the West.

Our 10K course is a runner’s dream. You’ll run a (mostly) flat course around gorgeous Lake Miramar, which ends with a long downhill finish.

Strap on your lightest running shoes and come set a personal record that will stand until next year when you do it all over again.

Top Notch

These sweet babies are light, breathable, and made from a super soft “Spectra Spun” cotton/poly blend.

They’re the very best shirts we’ve ever made, and every participant gets one free with registration.

A Really
Good Cause

Every year the Old Pros donate tens of thousands of dollars to youth scholarships and youth sports in Scripps Ranch.

When you sign up to run or ride with us, you’re helping us fund these efforts to give back to the community. 60% of the proceeds from this event go directly to support student athletes.

& Medals

Medals are awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each 10K age division.

Cash prizes are given to 1st ($300), 2nd ($200), and 3rd ($100) place overall finishers in the Men’s and Women’s Divisions. First place male and female finishers will also be awarded the Ron McElliott Cup.

Party in
the Park

Red, White, and You.

After you cross the finish line, the fun is just beginning.

Join us in Hoyt Park for the best after party in town where we’ll have live bands, a (free!) craft beer garden, inflatable slide, silent auction, face painting, sponsor booths, treats for the kids, and so much more.

Shuttle vans will transport participants from this lot to the start area between 6:00am-6:50am. Due to the ever increasing popularity of this event you are encouraged to arrive at the parking lot no later than 6:30am to ensure that you will be ready to start when the gun fires at 7:00am.

Our Sponsors

Ever wonder how we’re able to keep the 4th of July Run & Ride so darn affordable every year?

Well, the truth is… we get a ton of help from our generous sponsors and community partners. Their support is invaluable, and we couldn’t pull it off without them.
