BEACH. BEER. BANDS.
This beach bash doesn’t stop at the finish line! After your 5K head over the Pacific Beachfest Craft Beer Garden, playing host to ten of the best craft breweries the region has to offer. Remember, all 5K runners enjoy their first craft beer compliments of the house! Must be 21 y/o with valid ID to enter the Pacific Beachfest Craft Beer Garden.
Hours of Operation: 11:00AM – 6:30PM
Over 1,000 runners took over Pacific Beach in 2016 to enjoy a beautiful 5K run, the Pacific Beachfest Craft Beer Garden, live music and much more!
The Kids 1K Beach Run will take place after the Pacific Beachfest 5K Main Wave. The run will start at 11:00AM and will run entirely on the beach. Parents are welcome to run alongside their kids during the run.
All Kids 1K Beach Run participants receive a youth tank top, sunglasses and a custom finishers medal.
Dudes and Dudettes…how ’bout a follow?!
Is the run in the sand?
YES, the race consists of approximately 1.75 miles of running in the sand along the water. The other portion of the race is on the boardwalk.
Where should I park for the race?
All parking will be street parking in Pacific Beach. The Pacific Beachfest gets tens of thousands of visitors throughout the day. While many of them are local, allow extra time to park due to the amount of people driving into the area. There will also be a bike valet located at 750 Thomas Ave.
Can I run with my dog?
Per Pacific Beach regulations, dogs will not be allowed on the beach at the time of the race, therefore they cannot run with you. So unfortunately, you’ll have to keep your dog on the sidelines for this one!
