    It was another beautiful day in our city at the 25th Anniversary Brea 8k Classic. What an incredible race day, resulting in a record breaking 3,334 participants!

      The volunteers began to arrived at 3:00 a.m. at the Brea Mall and the set up process began. The course was constructed, finish line created, and the T-shirts and Goodie bags were ready!

        The sponsors arrived by 6:00 am setting up the wonderful food court and expo area. Then the fog rolled in with a crisp cool mist (which runners love by the way). Such excitement was in the air. It was the beginning of a wonderful event for families, teams, athletes, and friends.

          The participants were comprised of many age groups, who came from all over the land and met the challenge of this course. They crossed that big blue Brea 8k finish line knowing that they had succeeded once again or for the first time. It must be similar to the feeling our 8k Board members have when we finally pack up the 8k after months of preparation and put everything away for yet another year, thinking we did it! We really did, even better than last year and I can't wait till next year.

            Please join us Sunday February 26th 2017. It will definetely be another exciting year with a special weekend anniversary celebration of Brea's 100th year!

              Thank you Brea Mall and all our sponsors for another very successful event! Thank you City of Brea and our wonderful Police and Fire Dept for keeping us all safe.

                On behalf of the Brea 8K Board , GITA (Global IT Academy), Academic Booster Club, Instrumental Music & Color Guard Boosters and Choir Music Boosters, we thank you for your continued support year after year of this wonderful fundraiser!

                  Sincerely,

                    Jimini Ohler, Brea 8k Classic
