About This Activity

The Annual Janice Kelley Memorial Scholarship Run takes place on the scenic foothills at the base of Diamond Valley Lake in Hemet, California. The event remembers a woman who was a teacher, coach, mentor, friend and award-winning athlete in the Hemet Valley for decades.

As a student-athlete at Hemet, Kelley was a two-time Southern Section Division 2-A champion in the two-mile and placed fifth in the same event at the 1978 CIF-State Track Championships. She went on to be an All-American in track and field in college at Cal Poly, and later returned to coach her alma mater. In the mid-1990s, she led the Bulldogs boys cross country team to consecutive top-five state finishes.

All funds from the events are awarded as scholarships in her memory. Coach Janice Kelley was an unforgettable woman. With this event we remember her and show gratitude for her legacy of influencing hundreds (maybe thousands) of runners and lifelong athletes.

Event details and schedule

The course is at the bottom of the lake which is situated in West Hemet off Domenigoni Parkway. There is little to no shade during the run, but the early morning start should afford perfect weather. Plan to arrive  in advance, dress, and hydrate. Good running shoes and light layers are recommended for all runners. Parking is free. There are restrooms at the facility.

Online sign up particpants should be able to check in using their electronic devices. 

Packet pick up will begin by 7:15 am, event introductions and opening ceremony will begin at 8 am. The 10K will begin promptly following opening comments and the 5K will commence within thirty minutes.
