My friends and I run quite a few races (5K, 10K, 1/2 Marathon) around California. More or less to stay in shape and for something to do on the weekend....and for the 'free' t-shirts, of course. The races are usually organized on a pro bono basis with proceeds going to a charitable organization or local charity.

Jun 2nd we ran in the Corona Del Mar Scenic 5K. It turned out to be one of the better 5Ks we've participated in, and I'd recommend it to anyone vacationing in Orange County in June. It's a very local event, with a majority of the participants hailing from Newport and the surrounding area. Very organized, gourmet breakfast from local restaurants following the race, and certainly interesting people watching. The Start/End is near the jetty in Corona Del Mar (Newport Beach).

One word of advice. As with many of the racing along the CA coast, there are a number of 'real runners' (I mean those guys/gals that are out running daily) and/or professional athletes or Olympians, so unless you run a 15:30 5K, don't plan on running all out in hopes of placing in the event. Take it easy. Enjoy the scenery and atmosphere.
