About This Activity

WORLD’S FASTEST* 5K
Welcome to the World’s Fastest 5K*.  This course has been designed with gravity in mind. Starting on the track of Golden Valley High School overlooking the beautiful Santa Clarita Valley, you will circle the flat campus of the high school then exit on to the Golden Valley Paseo taking the last 1.8 miles downhill.  Just at the point where your legs usually give out, Isaac Newton’s theory will kick in and pull you home.  This is the only race where those few extra pounds may actually be an asset.  The course drops 725 feet mostly over the last 2 miles but is never too steep and allows for maximum stride and speed.  Want to feel what it’s like to race at top speed? Run down our hill and enjoy the thrill.
FEATURES:
• This is a one-way course so you won’t be depressed by seeing the leaders on their way back while you are still heading out. 
• The course is 100% on pavement offering sure footing and a fast surface. 
•  We’ll offer a water stop, but you’ll probably be moving too fast to get a drink.
This is a unique racing opportunity unlike any in Southern California.  You will never know how fast you can run until you try a downhill 5K
* Potentially – an Olympian on this course could do some serious record book damage
