SoCal 9×5 Rules

  1. You must register using the exact same name and birth date for each event.
  2. You must wear the race timing device and receive an official time for each event. If you do not have an official finishing time, you will automatically be disqualified.
  3. Entry into each event is not guaranteed – register early to ensure your spot and save money.
  4. Each event has its own time limits – to be eligible for the SoCal 9×5, you must adhere to each time limit.



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.
