Enjoy a fun, spirited, Halloween-themed event (costume optional) on the fabulous trails of Santa Clarita.
There is a reason why Santa Clarita is known as the Southern California hub of cycling and running — scores of great bike paths and running trails snake through this wide-open and scenic valley. Join hundreds of your fellow cyclists and runners along the scenic San Fransciquito Bike Path and beyond as well as riding the beautiful Santa Clara River Path. For those who want a serious ride, take on our Metric Century which travels up to Acton by the world-famous Vasquez Rocks.
BONUS!! We have added a 5K and 10K Costume Run/Walk you can walk or run! To throw in an extra twist, since this event is on Halloween weekend, we will be giving out awards for best costume! So, get creative and come dressed in your spooky best!

Finish the Ride was started by Damian Kevitt in the spirit of courage and determination to overcome tragedy despite insurmountable odds, following him losing his leg to a hit-and-run crime. It is a movement, which has been heard around the world, to stop the epidemic of hit and run crimes and make the streets safer for all road users.
More than 32,000 people are killed and 2 million are injured each year from motor vehicle crashes in the United States. In fact, the United States has the highest number of crash deaths each year out of 10 other high-income nations – by almost double. On top of this, the United States has the lowest decrease in crash deaths out of all these nations.
