You have two options to participate.
Option 1 is on Thanksgiving morning at the Rose Bowl Stadium. A timed race will go through a timed 3.1 mile course. All participants will receive a race bib and medal. The race will start and finish at the top of Lot K. The course itself will run through the spacious Brookside Golf Course. On race day bib pickup will begin at 7:30 am. We highly encourage you to pick up your bib in advance on Wednesday, November 24th from 3 pm - 7 pm at the Rose Bowl Gate A entrance.
Option 2 is a virtual race and can be done from anywhere from November 24th through November 26th. So what is a VIRTUAL event? A virtual run/walk means that all registered participants would run or walk at a place of your own choosing. This could be your neighborhood park or running trail, bike path, quiet neighborhood streets or wherever walking and running is safely permitted. All participants are encouraged to use the Race Joy app to track their official time and automatically send in their finish time as well as listen to some special messages from Rose Bowl friends during your trot. In addition, a downloadable custom race bib will be available as well. All virtual race registrations prior to 11/15/21 will be mailed a medal before Thanksgiving. Any registrations thereafter will arrive at the soonest possible time.
