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 of 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.

Baby Strollers & Dogs

We welcome strollers at this race and have a new Special Stroller division - for use in either 5K, 10K or 1 Mile divisions. Please use caution starting the race and yield to runners without strollers. When approaching the finish-line, please use also caution as there is a curb from the road up to the finish-line on the grass. Race crew will be stationed to assist. 

We welcome participants to run/walk with leashed dogs (6-foot, non-retractable), but please note that dogs must be off the Tecolote Shores park grass/sidewalks at 9am. This City of San Diego law will be enforced by park management and race crew on race day.
