Get set for an electrifying adventure at the San Diego Veterans Day Silver Strand Half Marathon, 12K, 8 Miler, or 5K – an experience like never before!
🏃♀️🏃♂️ Picture this: A heart-pounding, flat-out run along the closed Silver Strand Highway 79, with the majestic Pacific Ocean on your right and the stunning San Diego Bay on your left. 🌊
But hold onto your running shoes because it's not just a race – it's a BLAST! 🎉 As you tackle the half marathon, 12K, or 10-mile courses, you'll groove to the rhythm of the Taku Drummers, jam to the hottest beats spun by a DJ, and soak in live music that'll have you moving to the groove. 🥁🎵
And when you cross that epic finish line, your jaw will drop! 🏖️🌅 You'll find yourself right on the state beach, toes in the sand, and the ocean's gentle waves washing over the shore. But wait, there's more – get ready for the ultimate California Beach Party, featuring a live band and a buzzing beer garden! 🍻🎸
All of this unfolds as you conquer the iconic "Silver Strand" route from Coronado to Imperial Beach. 🌴
And just a stone's throw away is Coronado Island, seamlessly connected to downtown San Diego by a charming bridge. 🌉
But that's not all – when you participate, you're making a difference. Your involvement supports important causes: the Life Sports Foundation, Team Hoyt, and Islander Sports Foundation.
So, what's stopping you? Join us for the San Diego Half Marathon, 12K, 8 Miler, or 5K and prepare for a race day like no other! 🏆👟
