This family friendly event also has a Kids Fun Run – the whole fam can get in on the action!

Mission Beach / Bay Area

After a great day of running and celebrating, head across the street to Belmont Park where you can ride the historic Giant Dipper roller coaster or rent a bike and cruise the beach boardwalk.

If you’re looking for a place to relax and have a great lunch, there are several great bars and restaurants also located within the Belmont Park area and next to the Boardwalk.
