Stereotypically, Southern California is known for fast 3 Mile courses, while the Northern portion of the state tends to focus on more challenging terrain at both 3 Miles and 5000 meters. There are exceptions, of course (ahem, Mt. SAC) - and one of those exceptions is a cluster of fast 5K courses run in the SJS, Bay Area, and Fresno that stretches over a three-week period. We've had three of the four large, fast 5000 meter races already, so it's time to start comparing the team and individual performances! Plus, we've thrown in a lightning-fast 5k from SoCal, just for fun.
