Course Map

The SCV Arts Run features 2 unique courses for each distance going through the Santa Clarita paseo pathways and within Valencia Heritage Park. Each distance goes by the following course map colors:

  • 5K = Blue Course
  • 10K = 2 Laps of 5K Course
  • Kids Dash = Orange Course

This is a very flat and fast course, great for setting new personal bests (PR), but also great for walkers and first-time runners. Below are the course map and details.


Start/Finish Line

The Arts Run start/finish line and event staging will be located in West field of the Valencia Heritage Park.

Arts Festival

At the main event staging area will be the Arts Run festival featuring various arts activities, vendors, and sponsor booths for everyone to enjoy. Plan to arrive early for check-in and enjoy the festivities during and after the race.

5K Course

Starting in Valencia Heritage Park runners and walkers will leave the park and go right onto the paseo, going North, following the paseo to reach the water station and U-turn location. As you return from the U-turn take the paseo fork up onto Decoro Dr. and turn right to cross over the bridge, then at the end take a right to return onto the paseo and under the bridge.

Follow the paseo South to Newhall Ranch Rd, go right to cross over the bridge and then right again to get back onto the paseo. As you reach the Valencia Heritage Park entrance from the paseo, take a wide U-turn to enter the park, follow the course going around the perimeter of the park and into the finish line!

10K Course

Runners doing the 10K distance will complete the 5K course twice and experience the on-course art activities twice. Upon completing the 5K distance and approaching the finish line, instead of turning left to finish, go forward to start the second lap for 10K, then come into the finish line as you complete the second lap.

Kids Dash

For kids 3-12, the Kids Dash starts in Valencia Heritage Park and follows the perimeter of the west field with various art elements and displays before coming into the finish line. Kids go first so parents and can support and cheer them through their race!


There will be an aid station on the course for 5K and 10K runners at the U-Turn location. The station will have water, electrolytes, and energy gels. Then at the finish line there will be water and food.
