The 5K Course

The challenging and unique course will begin at Carmel Del Mar Elementary School and will head south on Carmel Creek Road to the bike trail, heading east parallel to HWY 56. From there the course will take you out and back along a beautiful tree lined path with a mix of paved and trail running, splashed with some rolling hills. Runners will return to Carmel Creek Road, and then head back to the finish line at Carmel Del Mar Elementary School.

The Kid’s Fun Run (Grades K through 6)

The Kid’s Fun Run will be a non-competitive one-mile course on Carmel Del Mar Elementary School grounds. This a great way to involve your children in a healthy lifestyle and benefit the DMSEF at the same time. The Kid’s run is for the Kid’s only. Mom and Dad get to cheer them on!!
