Grouches Hate Running - 5K, 10K, 15K and Half Race Description

October 15th is "National Grouch Day!"

A runner's high is the perfect antidote to a grouchy attitude so we know there will be no grouches at this finish line because.

While we know that Grouches Hate Running, we can have some fun pretending to be a Grouch. Dress up like everyone's favorite Sesame Street character Oscar The Grouch and be entered in a drawing for a free entry to a future event. We will also have a contest to determine who can do the best Oscar The Grouch voice impersonation.

Boutique events that remove barriers and help individuals to connect and achieve their goals.

Signing up for one of our run/walk events won’t break the bank. Our low cost races are cozy and intimate, where you have a chance to get to know your fellow runner and your race director if you like. If you don’t want to chat or make new friend but prefer to put in your earbuds and get lost in the ocean breeze, that is total fine as well.

We will take care of you. Let us worry about the water and fuel you need to finish your distance so you can do you. You decide what feels right for you that day. 

You have the flexibility to sign up for any of at least four different distances at every one of our friendly gatherings. No hassle, no penalty fee involved if you want to change distances on race day. Small events means not having to get to the event hours before the start or sitting in a line of cars forever to get out of the parking lot.

High Tide Runs are a project of Mercury Events LLC. Mercury Events organizes larger events in throughout the Southwest United States.

Special incentives!

  • Sign up for 3 events at the same time, get 15% discount on the total
  • Buy 4 at one time, get 1 free.
  • 10 or more events in one calendar year, get a commemorative special edition HTR shirt
  • 15 or more events in one calendar year and you earn free entry to another event

 

Discounts will be automatically applied at check out, no discount codes to remember.

 

We will track you and let you know when you are close to qualifying for the 10 event and 15 event specials. Your job is to work on your fitness and enjoy the ride, leave the spreadsheets to us.

This is an open course.  There may be other pedestrians, runners, or cyclists on the beach path with you, please be courteous to them and do not spread out wide so that others can not get by you.

Running/walking with a stroller is encouraged but unfortunately, pets are not allowed. We have a 3:15 time limit for the half marathon.  If more time is needed, please email us at events@hightideruns.com for early start.

This is a small informal event.  Everyone will get a finishers medal that notes what distance you completed.  This is a smaller race that emphasizes a more personal satisfaction to racing. Thank you and look forward to seeing you out there! 

Results and photos will be posted here by the evening of the race day.  

Photos will be tagged and searchable by bib number so please wear your bib on your front in a way that it will be captured by our photographers.

Sorry but there are NO REFUNDS and NO DEFERRALS

Bib pick up -- 7:00AM-7:30AM for everyone

Parking -  There are meters on the street, they are free until 9am. Please don’t add a ticket to the cost of your race. Make sure that after 9AM your meter is paid quarters, or credit cards.  Also – check the signs to make sure you are not parked on a street sweeping block. Street sweeping goes from 7am to 9am and comes with a nasty ticket. The lot at the beach, adjacent to the start/finish, is a pay lot.

We are not responsible for keeping up to date on any price increases that Santa Monica initiates.
