A Runners Circle and Saucony present the BELLARMINE-JEFFERSON OPEN RACE! We welcome you to this longstanding tradition, a historic event that was exclusive to high school cross-country athletes for 38 years. In 2011 Coach Jim Couch, the race director, has opened this once-closed course to the public and is now on it’s 2nd year and counting!

The challenging 2.94 mile course serves as the arena in which approximately 4,000 high school athletes strive for the gold every year, making this Griffith Parks longest standing event. The event organizers have now opened the event to runners who wish to brave this course, sharing in the spirit of competition and tradition for 39 strong years.
