About the Race

Join us on Saturday, December 1, 2018, at the beautiful UC Irvine Campus, 

for what has become Orange County's best Holiday Tradition.


The OC Marathon Presents the  Run For a Claus 5K and Kids 1 Mile Run/Walk benefiting Toys For Tots, the Salvation Army and our own Kids Run the OC Foundation. All runners will receive a Santa Hat, Santa Beard, a finisher's medal and a commemorative mug for coffee or cocoa after the race. With cookies, costumes, holiday music and decorations, this will be fun for the whole family. We encourage everyone to dress up. You could be Santa Claus, Mrs Claus, a reindeer, an elf or a menorah or dreidal. The possibilities are endless.

"When you RUN FOR A CLAUS, you're running for a cause."
