2021 Event Details

The Rose Bowl 5K - January 16 & 17, 2021 

Participants will have the opportunity to run or walk on-site at the Rose Bowl at pre-reserved individual or family start times scheduled over these two days to assure appropriate physical distancing and to limit the number of people on the course and at the start and finish line area. Runners and walkers will start as individuals or family groups with ample spacing between starts. Runners/walkers will be timed, and limited support will be available.

Runners and walkers can also participate virtually at times and locations of their choosing. 

The Rose Bowl Half Marathon – March 27 & 28, 2021

Participants will have the opportunity to participate on-site at the Rose Bowl in pre-reserved and scheduled wave start times over these two days to assure appropriate physical distancing and to control the number of people on the course and at the start and finish line area. The number of people included in each wave start will be determined by then current health guidelines and conditions. The race will be timed with most normal race amenities delivered in a safe and sanitary way. The racecourse will be two loops within the Arroyo adjacent to the Rose Bowl.
