New for 2021! We will have online registration for our Open Race at 8:00 AM with CHIP timing. In person registration for the race will be from 7:00 AM to 7:50 AM. All participants must sign a Release of Liability Waiver. Entry is $5 per runner. Entrants may not be high school athletes. Great for coaches!

If you are a student at a Val Verde Unified School District school at the elementary or middle school level, you will race for free. You must have a parent or coach present to sign a waiver for you to participate. You must be able to show proof that you are a student at one of the schools in VVUSD.

The race is meant for smaller and medium schools. If Large schools are interested we have created a new division for the races. It is intended to be a very inexpensive race that gives the classic XC invitational feel. Teams are invited to enjoy the remainder of the day at Lake Perris SRA for biking, barbecuing, fishing, hiking, picnicking, and swimming.

Please RSVP with Coach Winter at to express interest in the run.
