The 21st Annual

Santa Anita Derby Day 5K

It’s the 21st anniversary of the Santa Anita Derby Day 5K, and it’s your turn to show off your Thoroughbred speed! Take part in this long-running event in conjunction with Methodist Hospital, The Los Angeles County Arboretum and Santa Anita Park.

Take off from an authentic Santa Anita Park starting gate and run for great causes including Arcadia High School Athletic Boosters, Arroyo and Alhambra High Schools, the Arcadia Historical Museum and CARMA. Stick around for the post-race party in the Infield!

All participants will also be invited to join us for the historic Santa Anita Derby, the race that kicked off California Chrome’s run to greatness, and a full day of Thoroughbred racing (racing program and Club House admission included!).

Runners will take home;

  • Custom Finisher Medal
  • Derby Day 5K t-shirt

Cash prizes to top finishers in Master (40+ years) and Open (Under 40 years) categories! Kids’ Six-Furlong Race & Homestretch Dash also available!
