Fifth Annual Carmel Valley 5K & Fun Run
Seasoned athletes and beginners alike were off to the races at the Fifth Annual Carmel Valley 5K Race and Fun Run on Jan. 22 in San Diego. Pardee Homes was the title sponsor of the event, which included a chip-timed USA Track and Field-sanctioned 5K and a non-competitive 1K Fun Run designed for all ages.
This year’s 5K began and ended at The Village at Pacific Highland Ranch (the Village) shopping center. The 1K was a family-friendly fun run/walk along Carmel Country Road. Pardee Homes has committed to being the race title sponsor through 2019.
An annual tradition for many families and residents in the area, the race raises money for local schools and charities. The Children’s Tumor Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Brycen Newman and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation were among this year’s recipients.
More than 1,600 participants and spectators enjoyed the event, which included the race and an after-party at the Village with 35 expo booths, live music, kids’ activities, food and entertainment. Councilmember Barbara Bry opened the race.
