Upcoming AREC Club Races

AREC Members who run races receive points in the AREC Grand Prix. In the past, Members received 5 bonus points for participating in a club race.

Here are the requirements for a 2017 race to qualify as an AREC Bonus Race: For a "Local" Race (from the Mexican border to the northern LA County/Santa Barbara County borders), a race in the previous year with 10 AREC participants, current year runners will receive 5 points. For an "Out of Town" race (not "Local"), any race with at least 5 runners in the previous year, the current year's runners will receive 5 points. Any race that did not have at least 5 runners in the previous year (i.e. not on this list), but gets at least 10 AREC runners will gain a bonus of 1 point for each runner. Finally, on any weekend where 100 AREC members participate in an event (if 1 person runs a 5K and 10K on the same day, that counts as "2"), all runners will receive 5 bonus points. Thanksgiving [Thursday - Sunday of the holiday weekend] and Fourth of July [including the day before or after if on the same weekend] (which will be listed below) will still be automatic bonus race days.

Note: If you review the past year's races, you will note that there are a few races not listed here that had at least 10 runners. Any races that are not easily accessible by all runners (i.e. Triathlons (unless affiliated with a race on this list) and Boeing Runs) are not eligible for Bonus Points.
