National hat day is in january each year and  this event is our way of celebrating national hat day and to honor the proud rich history of the Sombrero.  Here are some fun facts about the Sombrero

  • The word “sombrero” comes from Spanish “sombra” which means “shade” or “ shadow” 
  • Its origins can be found in  Spain as far back as 17th century 
  • The Sombrero is one of the largest and best hats for sun protection
  • Jarabe tapatío, often referred to as the Mexican hat dance, is the national dance of Mexico

Meet at  Rancho Simi Park (duck pond park)  at the intersection of Royal Ave and Thompson Ln. 


Early start option: 

We are proud to announce a “early start” option for the half marathon runners that need a little more time to finish and still be part of all the fun at the post race party. “Early Start” is at 6 am on race day;  BUT you have to let us know ahead of time so that we can capture your bib number for the official timing stats. We will NOT have all of our water stations setup until about 6:30 am so you are on your own for water for the first 30 minutes.   You must know the course  if you want to use the early option.   Please follow all traffic laws when crossing the street because  traffic control won't be out there till 7 am. 

Weekend Warriors / Beginners / walkers:
Yes, this is a very walker friendly course! It is mostly flat, with a few gentle rollers to keep you on your game. There are plenty of water stations and  loads of fun!  Generous 4:00 hour time limit for the half marathon, so take your time and enjoy the scenery!
