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 10K and Half Marathon course will be updated for 2019.  Thanks to the recent Newhall Ranch Road bridge construction we are now able to create full loops for the 10K and Half Marathon courses and have runners finish through the historic Iron Horse Bridge. Updated map and details to be posted soon!

Kids Fun Run


These elevation profiles may look like the course has some challenging hills, however it is a bit deceiving as the gain varies from approximately 20 feet to 100 feet depending on which course you are running. Overall these courses are very fast as the elevation is relatively flat, espeically the 10K and 5K courses, but the Half Marathon course does have some elevation changes from Station #2 to the U-Turn point after #3 to provide a little bit of a challenge.
