Five Cities Marathon canceled...again.
The Inaugural Five Cities Marathon, scheduled to come through Claremont on Saturday, October 9, has once again been canceled.
A lack of registered runners forced organizer Lori Calderon to call off the race. The marathon—which would include the neighboring cities of Glendora, La Verne, Pomona, and San Dimas—had previously been canceled in October 2010 for similar problems.
"We are quite disappointed, but do hope to return with a great event [next year]," Ms. Calderon said.
Those eager to start testing their racing skills can check out the San Dimas 5k and 1 mile Family Fun Run or Walk on Saturday, Sept. 24, or the Azusa for Clean Water 5k and 2k Family Fun Run on Sunday, Oct. 2. For a full list of local races, check out www.runningintheusa.com
