Lovers Point Park in Pacific Grove


The 3K will begin in four "waves". Participant bibs will be color coded to accommodate these waves.  Anyone with a child in a stroller should plan in starting with the fourth (last) wave.

The course will proceed along Oceanview Blvd. in Pacific Grove and head west towards the Monterey Bay Aquarium.  At the American Tin Cannery runners will make a u-turn onto the Recreation Trail and return to the finish at Lover's Point.  There is also the option of a 1.5K turnaround at Berwick Park for our littlest runners.


Registered participants may pick up their bib and event shirt at the Health & Fitness Expo on the Friday before the event.  Hours are noon to 6:00 PM. The Expo is located in the Monterey Conference Center next to the Portola Hotel & Spa in downtown Monterey. There is also race morning pick-up beginning at 6:30 AM at Lovers Point Park near the start of the 3K.

Participants in the Schools' Competition may make special arrangements for a bulk pickup in advance of race day.


Parking will be available in the neighborhoods adjacent to Lovers Point Park.  There will also be parking available for buses bringing groups of children for the Schools' Competition.  Stay tuned for more details.
