Race Profile

Recommended by: Bob Anderson
This is more of a local race but it deserves to be on the list for several reasons. First of all, the course runs right along the pacific ocean and probably one of the most beautiful race course in the country. Second of all, you can run the 10k as a couple and times are added together for scoring. That's unique. Third of all, the hand made medals in the shape of a heart is unique. Plus there are 1k kids races where the kids can actually race. Have run this at least 15 times and would recommend it to anyone. Normally it is the same weekend as the AT&T golf tournament too! Plus this race raises money for the Monterey County Rape Crisis Center.
