FAQ Preview

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!
