This is what 3 years and 13 medals looks like!

If you completed the inaugural SoCal 3×5 in 2018 then again in 2019, then congratulations – you are already SoCal 9×5 bound in 2020! The eligibility list will be available this month (in November).

Once you’ve accepted your SoCal 9×5 medal, the challenge restarts and you are eligible again after three consecutive years of completing the SoCal 3×5.
