About This Activity

The 35th Annual Spirit Run will take on Sunday, March 18, 2018 at Fashion Island, Newport Beach. With 12 road racing events, a Family Walk, and a Toddler Trot, Spirit Run has something for every age, from toddlers to grandparents. Adult races include the Adult 5k, 10k, 15k (5k + 10k, times combined and ranked), Elite Mile, Open Mile, and Dog Mile. Youth races include the Youth 5k (high school and younger), six 1/4 - 1-mile races for ages 4 - 19, and Toddler Trot. (Qualifying standards apply for Elite Mile.)

Spirit Run allows you to double or triple your fun by offering you the opportunity to race multiple races and to be eligible to win medals and prizes in each one. For adults, Spirit Run awards a cash prize purse in the Elite Mile, and a year's worth of pizza and gift cards for a "burger and brew" in the Adult 5k, 10k, and Open Mile, and certificates for massage in the Elite and Sub Elite Mile and the 15k. For youth (high school age and younger) awards include a year's worth of pizza for age 9 and older, and delicious cookies for age 8 and younger.

Spirit Run also gives adults the choice of whether to buy an event t-shirt. They may choose to purchase a long sleeve tech shirt for $7.

In between the walking and racing events, participants and spectators enjoy a Youth & Fitness Expo with a delicious pancake breakfast, other food and beverages, live music, massage and shopping for adults, youth activities, health and fitness information, and more.

The net proceeds of this long standing community event benefit education and athletics in the Newport - Mesa Unified School District.
