Running Events in San Diego County, May 2015
San Diego, California is a fit city where we love to be outdoors, take hikes, try the newest workout routines, and stay healthy. Since that is the case, San Diego running events are always easy to find, and there are definitely some fun San Diego runs to participate in. Here are two that are happening in San Diego County this month.
Yucatan Guacamole Avocado Half Marathon & 5K | Fallbrook, May 23rd
Fallbrook, CA is known as “Avocado Country” and this new, scenic run will take you through the beautiful Fallbrook countryside, the rolling hills, and the lovely outdoors of San Diego County.
This is the 2nd Annual Yucatan Guacamole Avocado Half Marathon & 5K, but despite the fact that it is so new, this run is quickly becoming a hit! This year, their Charitable Partnership is with Fueled by the Fallen, whose mission is to “honor the military and those public services agents that have lost their life protecting us and this great country”.
Although the 5K is sold out, the half marathon still has open spots available, so if you’re interested, be sure to register ASAP!
