The 22nd Annual Brea 8k Classic is this Sunday February 24th. This is a fun mini marathon that anyone can run. It can be fun for the whole family. I have ran the Brea 8k in past years and it was a big enjoyment. There were professionals there who blazed through and actually ran the marathon several times, they kept lapping me. And there were those that had to walk because of a past condition. Mothers brought their babies in strollers and some walked their pets.

Last year a new route was introduces as well as chip timing. This year will be no different. Registration seems like it will be higher this year than last.

The Brea 8k Classic supports various Brea Olinda High School programs that will receive funds from the race.  The Academic Booster Club, programs like Speech and Debate and Academic Decathlon will benefit, as will graduating seniors receiving scholarships. On the arts side, the high school instrumental program and, for the first time, vocal music program will receive a portion of the proceeds. Also for the first time, the BOHS Global IT Academy is taking an active role and will benefit from the race. The goal is to raise at least $50,000 for Brea Olinda High School programs.
