Temporary Postponement Due to Unsafe Air Quality

Due to the recent wildfires in California, the Air Quality Index for the LA County area is forecast to be unhealthy to hazardous for a minimum of the next six days.

Therefore we would like to encourage athletes registered for the 2020 Santa Monica Classic Virtual Race who have been affected by these conditions to DELAY their virtual race until a later date.

Please remember that ALL registered athletes have the option to complete the Santa Monica Classic at any time until December 31. Registered athletes not affected by the air quality conditions can still submit their times via the link below.

All official Santa Monica Classic activities including the Virtual Live Stream Coverage and Finish Festival have been postponed until further notice.
