We are running event directors

Rancho Racing develops running events in and around Rancho Cucamonga with the goal of fueling the passion of athletes while building our community through the joy of running. We set out to make a lasting impact on the lives of our participants and on our community at-large.

We are runners

As runners, we know the joy of earning a personal best and the disappointment of a bad day. We've experienced the rush of competition and have suffered through the pain of injury. Each of us was once a "newbie" who had to figure out which shoes were best for us, had to suffer through our first battle with chaffing, and who laughed at the word fartlek.

In short, we get you because we are you.


From the 5k to the marathon (and beyond), we’ll help you accomplish your goals… even if you don’t know what they are yet.

We can design a customized program for you along with proven training techniques and motivational leadership to help you accomplish your goals.

We are running coaches

When not running the streets and trails of Rancho Cucamonga, you can find Juan putting 25+ years of running and leadership experience to good use as he works to expand the list of Rancho Racing events for runners in (and near) the Rancho area.


The Southern California native launched Rancho Racing to meet the needs of a growing community of local runners at the edges of the San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire with limited local race opportunities. With the goal of creating high-quality homegrown running events throughout the city, he hopes to provide a memorable running experience for the thousands of local runners who blaze the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and to establish Rancho Cucamonga’s place on runners’ annual race calendars.


Juan has a B.A. from Colorado College, an M.Ed. from Claremont Graduate University, an M.A. from Cal Poly – Pomona, and an Ed.D. from USC. The lifelong Dodgers fan started running in high school, spent a number of years coaching high school cross country and track (distance), and has raced every distance from the 400m to the marathon at some point in his life. He enjoys running and reading and spends as much time as he can cheering for his son and daughter.
