    From its beginning, the Brea 8K Classic was a heartfelt, hometown event that focused on fun, fitness and fund raising for the students and programs of Brea Olinda High School. Today, though much larger, it’s still run by a team of hard-working but entirely unpaid parent and community volunteers.

      The proceeds of this year’s race will benefit the award-winning arts and technology programs of Brea Olinda High School-Instrumental Music, Vocal Music Boosters, and GITA/Academic Booster Club.

        The event kicks off with a performance of the Star Spangled Banner by Julianne Sexton, a senior from our vocal music program. Vocal music students also volunteer to cheer on the kids who run in the Fun Run (10 & under) by dressing up as popular film and animated characters. Band members from BOHS for a drum line to inspire the runners of the 8K near the finish line.

          This is one of the most popular races in Orange County - very professional and was chosen last year to be the home of the national USA Track and Field Masters 8K Race. Many of the best runners come from all over the country to participate in the Masters Race, in addition to the thousands who run the Brea 8K.

            This is the Brea 8K's 24th year. We are still on the lookout for Sponsors. Without the tremendous support from our sponsors, this race couldn't be possible.

              For businesses or companies interested in becoming a part of this year's race, contact Irene McCallister at If you'd like to be a goodie bag sponsor, please contact Jimini Ohler at
