After careful consideration, we have decided to not hold LaceUp races this year.
While this is a difficult decision as life is slowly returning to normal, we feel we do not have enough time to produce a series to meet the LaceUp standard.
If you registered for 2020, you have the option to receive a 50% refund or roll your entry to 2022.
If you roll your entry to 2022, you will be locked in with the best price of the year, can upgrade your distance without paying the difference and you will receive one 20% off discount code to share with family or friends.
Please fill out THIS FORM if you would like to receive a 50% refund. Refunds will be issued on a rolling basis in the coming months. If you don’t fill out the form, your registration will be automatically transferred to 2022.
It has been a trying year for everyone, including the running industry, but we are looking forward to having LaceUp back and better than ever in 2022.
We love LaceUp for the community it has created and will sincerely miss the LaceUp family this year.
With great disappointment, we have made the decision to cancel Orange County, Palos Verdes and Riverside. Unfortunately, this means there will be no LaceUp races in 2020.
This was a difficult decision, but we feel it is the best option to ensure the health and safety of our runners, staff and everyone involved in the LaceUp race community. Our primary goal is to provide the best running experience at each race including an intimate race setting, unique perks and a lively post-race party with a beer garden and food trucks. Given the current circumstances, that was simply not feasible this year.
All 2020 registrations will be automatically deferred to 2021. When 2021 registration opens, you will receive a code to redeem that is equal to the amount of your original race entry. You will not receive a partial refund if you register for a less expensive race or distance. You will need to pay the difference if you register for a more expensive distance or race.
A special thank you to the municipalities of Irvine, Palos Verdes, Palos Verdes Estates and Riverside, including their stakeholders and authorities, who have worked with us in partnership and service.
