Carmel Valley 5K moves to January

The second annual Carmel Valley 5K and Fun Run benefiting the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) has moved from December to Jan. 25, 2014. The race fell on the same day as the Dec. 8 Iron Girl 10K and 5K at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, and to maximize the amount of runners participating, race organizer Katie Wilsey opted to move the date to January.

The 5K course will remain the same as last year; starting at Carmel Del Mar School and running on the SR-56 CVREP trail.  The Kid’s Fun Run will be a one-mile course on the Carmel Del Mar campus. New this year, runners will receive a technical tee.

Last year’s inaugural race raised over $38,000 for DMSEF and the foundation hopes to do even better this year. During registration, Wilsey is keeping tabs on the participation rates from each DMUSD school. The school with the highest percent of race registration (including friends and families) takes home a trophy. The 2012 winner was Carmel Del Mar — so far Del Mar Heights is in first place, followed by Ashley Falls and Carmel Del Mar.
