Sunday offers the main 5K race with multiple categories of runners, and the All Day 20K!

And don’t miss the post-race celebrations on Sunday with live music and more, including 2 free beers from Pizza Port for participants in the beer garden (ages 21 and over with ID).


You can expect plenty of participants and spectators, so plan to arrive early to find parking in the Village and along the course to cheer on the runners. Keep in mind that, as with other Carlsbad races, there will be a number of road closures including the Coast Road.
