Happy finishers in the 2016 race. Karen Billing

The 5K course is a loop on fast and flat Carmel Valley Road. The Fun Run is a non-competitive 1K race recommended for participants ages 3-6 and is a great way to involve children in a healthy lifestyle. All race registrants receive a goody bag, a performance tee, finishers medal and can enjoy a fun community post-race party in the Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch with expo booths, live music, food, jumpies and more.

During the registration process, participants can select where they want their proceeds to go, selecting from the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation, Carmel Valley Middle School, Pacific Trails Middle School, Torrey Pines High School and Canyon Crest Academy Foundations, Solana Beach Schools Foundation or San Diego Jewish Academy.
