The Great Cow Run & the Higashi Roman Memorial Run

Be the first for 2021
The Great Cow Run began in 2006 as the Cerritos Cross Country Invitational. Due to construction at Cerritos Regional Park, the invitational did not race its second annual invitational until 2008. With a new course and a beautifully redesigned park, the Great Cow Run is hosted on beautiful course that runs across a flat grass and cement course that is viewer friendly. In addition, the invitational has grown in order to incorporate the theme of the cow (due to the history of Cerritos formerly known as Dairy Valley), as the lead bikers and runners dress in cow suits and the opportunity for photo ops with these cows is presented throughout the day. In 2011, the Chik-fil-a cow also paid a visit to the course to help promote for their Cerritos store located at the beautifully redesigned Los Cerritos Center. The meet provides a balance of quality team and aims at awarding as many individuals as possible! Join us for our thirteenth annual invitational on August 31, 2019, which we hope will be as great as an invitational as ever in one of the best cities around!
In addition, the high school invitational is preceded by the Higashi Roman Memorial Run which is dedicated to a Cerritos High School students and a an alumni who were tragically killed in car accidents in 2007 - Darren Higashi and Regina Nicole Roman. The invitational serves as an open race that individuals of all ages and abilities levels can participate to help support our program and to continue the memory of these two fine individuals. Each school who registers receives a free meet entry (no shirt included) [e-mail entries to firstname.lastname@example.org].
