Community Challenge

Cheer the Runners On

Community Challenge

We are excited to continue our cheering contest, The Community Challenge. The winners of this challenge can win a share of $5,000 for the non-profit organization of their choice. This contest is an exciting way for us to give back to the community and motivate our runners to push for the finish line.

To win, simply register below, name a Ventura County non profit of your choice, we assign you a location on route, then cheer for the runners as they make their way through the race. Try to be as memorable as possible, and cheer loudly as the winners are decided by the runners! After the race we will be sending out an online survey, asking the runners which cheer section inspired them the most. A total of $5,000 will be donated to the Ventura County non profit organization of the winner’s choosing!

Groups of 10-15 (or more) are ideal
Plan to be on course from 6:00 am till about 1:30 pm, depends on location on course
Bring snacks and sun screen!
Be creative to impress our runners! Dress up, recruit a band, make signs, play some music, dance around etc… Most of all, have fun! Space is limited, so register now, it is free!

Voting for the Community Challenge winners starts after race day on Monday and concludes that Friday.
