Riley's Run for Aortic Health

The Course!!

This year the run/walk will take place at the Hidden Valley Wildlife Center in Norco, CA!

Click this link for more information about the park!


There are 3 aid stations with water on the course.  The first two will be passed by both 5 and 10k runners.  The 3rd one is at the 10k turnaround.  The first aid station will be passed twice during the race.  


5k Route:  Runners will start in front of the Nature Center and follow the dirt path to the bike path.  At the bike path Runners will turn left and go out a short distance (not even a 1/4 of a mile) and do a U-turn on the path.  This little jaunt to the East was just to add enough distance to get to the 3.1 mark.  Now Runners will be heading west on the bike path for just over a mile (there is a steep down hill and up hill during this segment).  Shortly after 1 mile, Runners will be directed by volunteers and course markings to make a right, cross the road, and continue on the bike path now heading towards the Santa Ana River.  This loop is your second mile and as Runners make their way back up to the road at then end of the second mile they will encounter a gradual climb.  Once arriving back at the bike path Runners will now head back to the Nature Center (the steep down hill and uphill will be repeated with less than 1/2 mile to the finish!), Runners will turn left just after 3 miles and finish back where they started, in front of the Nature Center.


You will now proudly be wearing your medal!  Oranges, bananas, and water will be available at the finish! Stick around to cheer on the finishers and meander through the vendors that will be set up on the grass area on the other side of the finish line!   Don't forget to visit the Riley's Run information tent to learn more about our cause!



1k Kids' Run:

The 1k Kids' Run will be run at 9:30 so hopefully you can run your race and then cheer on your kiddos!  You are welcome to run along side of them also, just take off your bibs prior to running with them or it'll mess up the timing!  All kids will receive a medal too!


The course will start and finish at the same location as the other distances.  The kids will run to the bike path, turn left and at the .5km turnaround head back to the finish!




10k Course: 

10k Runners will start with the 5k Runners and follow the 5k course for the first half of the race.


Runners will start in front of the Nature Center and follow the dirt path to the bike path.  At the bike path Runners will turn left and go out a short distance (not even a 1/4 of a mile) and do a U-turn on the path.  This little jaunt to the East was just to add enough distance to get to the 3.1 mark.  Now Runners will be heading west on the bike path for just over a mile (there is a steep down hill and up hill during this segment).  Shortly after 1 mile, Runners will be directed by volunteers and course markings to make a right, cross the road, and continue on the bike path now heading towards the Santa Ana River.  This loop is your second mile and as Runners make their way back up to the road at then end of the second mile they will encounter a gradual climb.  Once arriving back at the bike path Runners will now head back to the Nature Center (the steep down hill and uphill will be repeated with less than 1/2 mile to the finish!), 5k Runners will now be turning left just after 3 miles and finish back where they started, you hardy 10k runners will continue straight (East) on the bike path for 1.55 miles.  Just before the 10k turnaround mark you will run down a pretty steep hill only to have to climb the same hill as you return to the finish!  An aid station will be at the 10k turnaround for you!  When you are headed back (west) you will be directed by volunteers to turn right to the finish when you get back to the nature center for your final .1 miles--finish strong!

You will now proudly be wearing your medal!  Oranges, bananas, and water will be available at the finish! Stick around to cheer on the finishers and meander through the vendors that will be set up on the grass area on the other side of the finish line!   Don't forget to visit the Riley's Run information tent to learn more about our cause!
