The Saints Run 5K, St. Anthony High School’s annual community run, will kick off on Saturday, March 12th at 8:00 am sharp at downtown Long Beach’s Shoreline Aquatic Park.

All entrants will receive a specially designed souvenir Saints Run t-shirt, discount coupons from local vendors, and treats at the finish. The top three runners in all eight age categories (13 and under; 14-18; 19-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69; and 70 and older) will receive official Saints Run medals, as well as other surprise prizes, immediately following the race. 

Pre-registration is available online now at LongBeachSaints.org, and in-person pre-registration, as well as pre-race packet pick-up, will be at Sports Authority (4950 Faculty Ave., Lakewood) on Friday, March 11th from 3:00pm-7:00pm. Pre-registration is $15 for participants 18 and younger and $30 for participants 19 and older. On race day, starting at 7:00am, registration will be $25 for participants 18 and younger and $40 for participants 19 and older.

The Saints Run expects to draw more than 1,000 participants. All proceeds benefit St. Anthony High School’s financial aid and scholarship program, giving students in the greater Long Beach area the opportunity to have an exceptional Catholic, college preparatory education. The Saints Run is organized and hosted by the school’s Parents and Educator in Partnership (PEP) organization.
