PARKING & DIRECTIONS
The race starts and finishes at Tecolote Shores Park South in Mission Bay. The address is 1300 E. Mission Bay Drive, San Diego, CA 92109.
Parking is available north of the race site on the east and west side of East Mission Bay Drive AND the numerous parking lots on the west side of East Mission Bay Drive. There are two lots south of the Hilton, lots north of the Hilton at Playa Pacifica Park and lots both north and south of the Mission Bay Visitor Center.
All these lots are within a 5-15 minute walk to the start. You may walk to the event site by walking along the grass alongside Mission Bay Drive or just follow the sidewalk to the water and enjoy a pretty (safer for strollers, families) walk south on the sidewalk to our race site.
Directions: Take 1-5 and exit Clairemont Drive/ East Mission Bay Drive, Turn WEST (towards the ocean) and park north of the event site using the above parking suggestions.
Each paid entry includes an event t-shirt, chip-timed results (5k/10k) and post-race refreshments. Stay tuned for more 2017 perks! In 2016, we featured a beer from Stone Brewing Co. and wine from ONEHOPE Wine (for those 21+).
