4th Of July Kicks Off With The Surf City Run 5K

Spectrum Sports returns with the popular Huntington Beach event featuring the popular Kid’s Run


CLAREMONT, Calif. – (May 11, 2016) – Spectrum Sports Management, the leading Southern California sports management event production agency, announces the Surf City Run 5k to take place July 4th, 2016. The event is fun for the entire family, serving as the grand kick off to the 112th Annual Huntington Beach Fourth of July Parade and Celebration. The run features the Residents Division 5k Run/Walk for residents of Huntington Beach, an Open Division 5K for all interested runners, a Stroller Division and the ever popular Kids Run as well as the Fitness Expo.

“The best part the run is that the kids no longer have to sit by and cheer on their parents who are running the race,” said Mike Bone, Race Director. “For the kids run, the roles are reversed and the parents get to cheer on their kids, making them feel great while promoting a healthy lifestyle early on.”

The race begins and ends at Worthy Park, directly south of Huntington Beach High School. Over 4,500 runners participate in the race, which takes them down the historic Main Street, then up and down the scenic Pacific Coast Highway. The run is divided up into the Residents 5k, Open 5k, Stroller 5k and Kids Run. Proceeds from the run benefit the Huntington Beach Jr. Lifeguard program, raising money for their programs, special trips and outreach to the community.
