Haviland, the city's economic development chief, has begun promoting the Nov. 8 event, hoping to get early sign-ups and perhaps plant the idea in runners' minds to begin training. The city has even changed the event, replacing the 10-mile run with an easier 5K run/walk. The 1-kilometer Kiddie kid·die or kid·dy

``We think it will really get the community involved,'' Haviland said. ``Just about anyone interested can come and do it. They can walk it if they want.''
Haviland's regular city job has little to do with running or recreation, but he has run the city's marathon since it was created in 1995.
Haviland said he remembers when race founder Jerry Cherrington began talking about starting a marathon in Santa Clarita.
``I had run another marathon before in Sacramento, and I did all this bragging,'' Haviland said. ``Then they started this marathon up and I thought, Oh, I'm in trouble now.''
But Haviland and other area residents have enjoyed the event, which has been named one of the top 100 in the country in the Ultimate Guide to Marathons. In addition, the race and Santa Clarita were featured recently in Running Times, one of the major running magazines.
Cherrington worked to bring the event to Santa Clarita along with city officials, and played an active role in the organization in the years that followed. He also served as a city planning city planning, process of planning for the improvement of urban centers in order to provide healthy and safe living conditions, efficient transport and communication, adequate public facilities, and aesthetic surroundings. commissioner before leaving for Des Moines, Iowa “Des Moines” redirects here.

``For 2-1/2 events, he was the man,'' Haviland said.
Last year, the event grew by 44 percent, with about 800 people running in the marathon. An additional 400 runners participated in the 10-mile event.
And this year, Haviland said he expects even more runners, especially with the shorter 5K Run/Walk.
``Eighty percent of the people last year said they would return again,'' Haviland said. ``This event has a really good spin out in the running world as a really well-organized event.''
Haviland said he will spend the next few months seeking sponsors and getting exposure in running publications.
And as the event continues to grow, Haviland and other city officials hope Santa Clarita's reputation will spread.
``Part of this is tourism. We want to get them to stay in our hotels and check out Santa Clarita,'' Haviland said. ``It's all part of creating the brand and image of Santa Clarita.''
