The Pro Race
A world class field will be back in 2024 to race on the fastest 10K course in Southern California!
The Kook Run Pro/Elite Race was the West Coast's fastest 10K in '22 and '23, and will be made up of an international field of runners as well as the top runners in Southern California in '24. All will be racing for a cash purse of $3000.
Entries to the Pro and Elite fields are by invitation only. Pros and Elites will have a separate start corral to provide fair access to the course. Only registered participants in the Pro and Elite fields will have access to this corral and be eligible for the prize purse.
The Pro Race is a treat for all! It's the only running event in Southern California where you run on the course with the pros, and see the pro race as a fan at the same time.
