I had the honor of being an Ambassador for the Holiday Half Marathon this year. I opted to take on the ❄️”Golden Snowflake Challenge,”❄️ which consists of completing the Ugly Sweater 5K on Saturday & then finishing the Half Marathon on Sunday. The incentive?? Bragging rights & extra BLING!🏅🏅🏅
I arrived at gate 9 the Fairplex in Pomona and parking was plentiful and easy to access. Once parked, it’s a short walk through the entrance to the festivities.
There are several photo opportunities available for you to strike a pose…we love a good silly pic! Even Santa showed up for pics! They were handing out beanies for everyone and a bonus ornament picture frame medal. One of my favorite things about this event is that everything is easy to get to and in one central location. Packet pickup & bag check was quick and right there next to all the action, making it super convenient for those who didn’t wanted to carry their race shirt and other swag during the race.
Another fun feature of this race is the “snow” start!
Thankful for another gorgeous day in Southern California & making it to the finish line!
😍 the medal so much…pictures don’t do it justice! It is so pretty and twinkles like crazy with all the silver glitter on it. Pictured with it is one of the two beanies that Motiv Racing gave away.
Here I am after the race with fellow Ambassador Tam & Ambassador Program Liaison Daryl…💜 these ladies!
After the 5K, it was time for the kids 1 mile Penguin Dash! Both my girls were in the first wave…
Starting line stretches to get the blood moving!
This is a FREE race for kids up to 12-years-old. Medals awarded to all participants…and they are super cute!
