Second annual Carmel Valley 5K set for Dec. 8


By Karen Billing

The second annual Carmel Valley 5K and Fun Run will run through the community again this year, on Sunday, Dec. 8. The race, which benefits the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF), was approved by the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board at its June 27 meeting.

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 Kids’ Fun Run will be a one-mile course on 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.
