Races in Orange County



Races in Orange County? I don’t know about you, but it seems like everyone I know (or meet) seems to be  in “training”…  whether it’s for a 5K, a mountain bike race, a half or full marathon, triathlon, or cycling road race. If you are one of these people (or want to become one of these people), then this huge list of races is just for YOU!

If you’re really serious about it, you could be racing nearly every weekend. But we’ve tried to narrow our list to only Orange County area races, that still have open registration (although we did include one or two races that have you venturing into Los Angeles County & down south to San Diego).
