The Sugar Daddy race features 4 unique courses for each distance on the awesome paseo pathways, taking runners of each distance to experience different parts of the Santa Clarita Valley. Each distance goes by the following course colors:

  • Half Marathon = Red Course
  • 10K = Purple Course
  • 5K = Blue Course
  • Kids Run = Yellow Course

There are a total of 6 aid-stations throughout all the courses and the start/finish line, plus don't forget runners will get ice cream at the finish line!


The Sugar Daddy Race Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K courses have been updated for 2019.  Thanks to the recent Newhall Ranch Road bridge and underpass construction we are now able to create full loops for the 10K and Half Marathon courses and eliminate the short out/back on the 5K race. Now all runners finish through the historic Iron Horse bridge. Updated map and details are below.

Half Marathon


The Half Marathon elevation profile has a very gradual elevation gain and descent that is mostly between Station #2 to #3 and back to provide a bit of challenge. Otherwise, most are small hills that come from road underpasses or bridge crossings. Overall a very fast course.
