by | Nov 29, 2018 | Community

 Bring the whole family Sunday, February 24 as the Santa Clarita Track Club and Westfield’s Valencia Town Center celebrate Mardi Gras Madness.
Mardi Gras Madness is a premier family fun run / walk centered in the heart of the Santa Clarita Valley, offering participants a scenic USATF certified 5K / 10K circuit course, chip timing, custom marathon quality finishers medal, tech T, health and fitness expo, beer garden, food, costume contest, games and giveaways, celebrity hosting, and live entertainment. Mardi Gras Madness is stroller friendly and open to K9 participants as well.
The event benefits Students Off And Running (SOAR), an official Featured LA Marathon charity that provides a fully supported marathon training experience to youth in need living in the Santa Clarita Valley at no cost to student participants or their families; marks SOAR’s 12th year of success as the program continues to offer weekly challenges set in a truly non-competitive arena; stressing endurance, self-determination, and perseverance as opposed to speed. Student participants choosing to take on the 24 week, 380-mile training program gradually add miles to weekly distance goals until prepared to take on the grueling 26.2 mile LA Marathon. With last year’s sellout of more than 1,000 attendees, the Mardi Gras Madness 5K/10K and Mini Madness 1K are sure to be a family favorite!
