Save the date for our 9th Annual Totally AV Fair Wave Race at the Antelope Valley Fair PARADE! We were unable to secure use of the Blvd prior to the AV Fair Parade so we have moved the location and date of our race…. But, save the Date of October 27 and plan on meeting us at Apollo Park for our 9th annual event. Exact detail will soon be announced.

The event will include: (details below subject to change….)

  • 5K Wave Race/Wave Walk

  • Hi Quality, custom made spin medals (better than your typical 5k medal) will be given to the top 50 overall finishers – not based on age divisions. There are no age group divisions or awards since the start of the race is handicapped by age and gender.
