The Lexus LaceUp Running Series once again kicks off the season in beautiful Orange County, CA. The Marathon Relay, 10k, 5k and Kid’s 1k will take place at Irvine’s Mike Ward Community Park on a fast and flat running path that winds through the vast open space under massive, shaded trees. This year, teams will have access to the ultimate runner VIP experience as they race to complete 26.2 miles. Don’t be surprised when you see professional cheerleading squads cheering you to the finish.

After setting a new personal record, kick back and relax with a complimentary Sierra Nevada beer and food truck brunch in a lively event hub. This race is great for the family too, with a Kids Race and children’s activities on the schedule.

LaceUp Orange County is a community-oriented race with a big-race feel. You and your team will feel right at home.

New!  The Lexus LaceUp Running Series presents the Orange County Walk for a Cause 5K with proceeds benefitting the American Diabetes Association. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS.

“LaceUp Running Series is well organized, with lots of social media opportunities which I LOVED. It had small touches that you don’t see at big races, but a well-organized, not small-time production. It’s very clear that a lot of thought went into the race.” 

“I hope a few local race directors were there taking notes on how to properly organize a race! Can’t wait to run all of your events next year.” 

“This was my first time attending this event, and I look forward to running it again next year. You’ve really made a GREAT first impression on me.”
