Hi Everyone,

This is it, the biggest run of the season. Many of you will be running more miles tomorrow than you have ever run before and we want to give you a big congratulations. Training for a marathon is a big task and we are so excited to see how far everyone has come. We want to encourage runners to try and stick around tomorrow after your run if you can to provide some moral support to the runners that are going further. We will also be hosting a potluck so it should be a fun day all around. See you in the morning.  

Potluck this Saturday 

This Saturday is an all hands potluck. We ask everyone to bring something to share with 3-4 other people. We need to celebrate the longest run of the season and give you a reason to stick around until the last runner comes in. We all know this is an individual sport but we also know how good it feels to have people cheer you in and give a high five when you have just run your longest run. It’s always a good time and it looks like the weather is going to be great. Bring your food or drink contribution to the warm up area and we will hold it while everyone is out on the run and have it set up when you come back.

Summer Season SignUps

If you are thinking about signing up for the summer season this is the time to do it before prices go up on 5/18/2019. Hope you will join us as it will be an exciting season filled with new runs, track workouts and a few other surprises I have up my sleeve.  (CLICK)

Saturday @  7:15am - The San Diego Junket “LONG” Run

Simple. . . It’s just a big-ass, long run!  It covers Crown Point, Ocean Beach, Pt. Loma, Downtown, Old Town and Mission Bay and it based on an old San Diego favorite “Tour of San Diego” - named for obvious reasons. The transition from Ocean Beach to Pt. Loma is up and over a road called “Hill Street”  :) The extended 22.5 mi option goes further into downtown, then UP A St andUP into Balboa Park for additional mileage and hills.

    As Always

    Please let us know if you have questions.

    See ya out there!
