SoCal Ultra Series

Are you a SoCal Series Hero?

We're pleased to announce our latest but biggest challenge for our members.

Do you have what it takes to become a SoCal Series Hero?

In order to become a SoCal Series Hero you'll have to run and finish every single race which is participating at the Southern California UltraRunner's Grand Prix Series! You've read it right: starting in January, with the very first race, you'll stand at the starting line and cross the finish line of every race listed in our list of participating races. If you have done that successfully then you will be a SoCal Series Hero.


Here are the rules:

  1. You will have to finish every participating race within the same calendar year.
  2. If there is one race on Saturday and another different race on the next day (Sunday) you only have to finish one of them and you can pick the one you want to run.
  3. If a race has multiple distances offered, like for example Born To Run 30M / 60M / 100M / 200M, you can pick the distance you want to run.
  4. In the extremely unlikely event, that there is more than one SoCal Series Hero in the very same year, then one with the most points of best 6 races wins.

The winner of the SoCal Series Hero challenge will win this incredible price:

A VIP package to run the Swiss Alps 100 in Switzerland!

This VIP package includes the flight from an US airport to either Zürich or Geneva, transportation and lodging the day before and the day after the race.
