Athletics: Run, Walk, or Skip through the OC Super Fair!

Orange County, CA - The OC Marathon is proud to announce an exciting new health and fitness partnership with the OC Fair & Event Center. Imagine running through the OC Fair Super Fair before it opens; through the Pacific Amphitheatre past the Ferris wheel, rides, funnel cakes, elephants and more! At 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, July 12th, the OC Super Fair 5K Run/Walk Series will launch the official start of the OC Super Fair prior to the 10:00 a.m. public opening. A second Closing Celebration 5K will take place prior to opening at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, August 9th.

This is part of the exciting partnership the OC Fair & Event Center has developed with The OC Marathon and kicks off year long fitness and nutritional effort that will culminate with the OC Marathon & Half Marathon and the very popular “Kids Run the OC Final Mile” marquee events next May, 2010. “The OC Marathon is so pleased to expand our partnership with the OC Fair & Event Center with the Super Fair 5K Series,” said, Jane Martin, CEO, The OC Marathon. She adds, “What a fun idea and what a great way to experience the Fair. Just imagine running through the Fair before it opens!

Steve Beazley, President & CEO, OC Fair & Event Center adds, “We are pleased to be teaming with an organization that offers so much community benefit as the OC Marathon does. The OC Super Fair 5k Runs have two goals; to promote health through running or walking and to allow people to burn enough calories to eat a deep fried Oreo, guilt free.”

Runners can participate in the Opening 5K - or, the Closing Celebration 5K, for $35.00 and get a medal, cotton t-shirt and free admission to the OC Super Fair for the day. Or, runners can participate in the 5K Run Series for $60.00 and receive the first-ever OC Super Pass that includes complimentary admission to all 23 days of the Fair, express lane at entry, Carnival coupon book, two for one Pacific Amphitheatre concert tickets for select shows, and more. (Valued at $400) In addition, those that sign up for both 5K runs get free training from the elite athletes at ICR Beach Runners, one technical shirt, and two finishers medals that have an innovative clasp, allowing them to be displayed together.

“Not only is this a great course, but, what a great deal; entrance to the Fair for 23 days, a chance to enjoy the Fair at your leisure, take in a concert or two, then come back and see those things you have missed. I can’t believe the line up for the concerts - what a fun way to enjoy summer in the OC!” said, Jane Martin, CEO, The OC Marathon.
