From its beginning, the Brea 8K Classic was a heartfelt, hometown event that focused on fun, fitness and fund raising for the students and programs of Brea Olinda High School.

Today, though much larger, it’s still run by a team of hard-working but entirely unpaid parent and community volunteers. The proceeds of this year’s race will benefit the award-winning programs of Brea Olinda High School through the work of the GITA (Global IT Academy)-Academic Booster Club, Instrumental Music & Color Guard Boosters and Vocal Music Boosters. This single event continues to benefit the students of our only high school more than any other.
