Series Runner Challenge

California Series Runner Challenge



The California Series Runner Challenge has been adopted by several races across California creating a really fun opportunity for all levels of
runners. This series allows athletes of all ages and competitive nature the opportunity to run for rewards. The great part about this is that there is no cost to run in the series. Each event participating in the series will proudly carry the series logo showing their affiliation and the
series will track the results of all runners. For details on how to participate in this series, or to learn about which events are participating, click here to be redirected straight to the series site.

To our dedicated runners who have joined us from all over since 2011. We have immensely enjoyed serving all of you, however we have made the decision to retire the Walnut Creek Running Festival. We have absolutely enjoyed hosting this event, and the City of Walnut Creek has been so awesome to work with. Talk about championing an event. They have been behind us 100% since the beginning.

Half Marathon Road running events are a feat in and of themselves. To host this type of event where you get to use the city surface streets bringing a large gathering of runners together all on one day is a task and takes months of planning every year. We were fortunate enough to have been given this level of trust by the City. But with each year of planning this event, also comes the consideration and cost of other things that need tending to as well.

That being said, we are shutting down this event, but we will still be around. To learn more about our other events, please visit
