THE HISTORY
The Cinco de Mayo Trail Run was launched by the Valley Elementary Educational Foundation in 2007 to raise money for Valley Elementary School in Poway. Each year the event has grown and now draws more than 1,200 runners throughout San Diego County and Southern California.

THE IMPACT
Since Poway has a strong reputation for its top-ranked and thriving school district, it is easy to forget that many of our students at Valley Elementary are actually struggling. In fact, 52% of students at Valley Elementary are socioeconomically disadvantaged and 52% participate in the school’s free lunch program—that’s an astonishing 222% higher rate than the district average. These kids show up to school every day with open hearts and open minds, and now it is our turn to show up for them.

The Cinco de Mayo Trail Run raise funds that will give all kids equal access and opportunity to the school supplies, technology tools, and enrichment activities needed to build a foundation for lifelong success.

THE RACES
The 5K and 10K
The challenging and unique courses will take you out on the Lake Poway Trail through the foothills around the lake near Blue Sky Ecological Reserve. The 5K is designed to let you pick your pace. Enjoy it as an elite trail runner, as a challenging family run or simply a gorgeous morning nature hike. The 10K adds to this course — with a grueling out-and-back trek (or up-and-down if we’re being honest) into Blue Sky and a quad-burning +10% climb to the Ramona Dam. Take our advice and start training now!

The Kathy Crafts Young Memorial Kids Race
The Kathy Crafts Young Memorial Kids Race kicks off with a warm-up 15 minutes before the race starts and is perfect for kids 7 and under who aren’t ready to tackle the 5K and the mini-runners who want the fun without the competition! The approximately 1/3-mile course follows a trail on the near-side of Lake Poway and finishes in the same spot as the 10K and 5K — so even the kids enjoy all the fun and festivity of the main finish line. Parents are invited to chaperone their children in this race.
