 The STORM Track Club of Santa Clarita announced it had just secured final approval to host SOAR’s annual Mardi Gras Madness run / walk Sunday, February 24th at Valencia Town Center. 2019 will mark the 9th installment of this fun, family themed event, which offers a USATF certified chip timed 5K/10K circuit course; 1K fun run for the little guys; premier finishers medal, Tech T, goody bag, and custom race bib along with costume contest, health and fitness expo, Wolf Creek Brewery sponsored beer garden, music, and much more!
The news comes as 30 local high school students begin their 400-mile training journey with Students Off And Running (SOAR) in hopes of finishing the Los Angeles Marathon in March of next year. Now in its 12th year of operation, SOAR continues to offer a unique, no cost, marathon training opportunity to youth in need living in Santa Clarita, and is an official Featured Charity for the 2019 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon.   “Our ongoing partnership with the LA Marathon offers tremendous opportunity to further our mission while maintaining the visibility needed to raise funds to support our kids in training. SOAR’s Mardi Gras Madness 5K/10K, hosted by the STORM and Valencia Town Center represents a significant portion of our annual fundraising strategy, and I’m truly grateful for the tremendous community support that has helped to sell out the event for the past 6 years,” SOAR Director Kevin Sarkissian commented.
