Jake’s Del Mar hosted its 35th Annual Beach Fun Run Oct. 28. In celebration of the first-ever Breeders’ Cup World Championships coming to Del Mar, Jake’s teamed up with the Breeders’ Cup to kick off the Festival Week with this community event. The 5K (3.2 miles) Fun Run took place on the beach, starting and finishing on the sand at Jake’s Del Mar. Breeders’ Cup Ambassador Bo Derek served as the race’s official starter and she led the field on horseback at the start of the race.
Proceeds from the race will be donated through the Jake’s Del Mar Legacy of Aloha Program to the La Colonia Branch of the Boys & Girls Club of San Dieguito and Friends of the Powerhouse.
