Triple Crown 2011: Running on Beautiful Beachfronts

  1. Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad 
  2. La Jolla Half Marathon  
  3. America’s Finest City (San Diego)

I was looking at a Running USA booklet the San Francisco marathon was handing out. I found an event called, “America’s Finest City” run, so I went to their website. I wanted to try and do at least one more run for this summer. Unfortunately, it was sold out for this year but I saw something about a Carlsbad run. I clicked on the link and saw that it was much closer than most of the events I’ve been doing this year. So, I looked at the event information and saw that runners have 4.5 hours to finish. The run was also in January which was perfect because it’s not during the semester. I signed up for it and kept looking at the information.

I noticed something that said Triple Crown and clicked on it. It pointed to two other runs, La Jolla and San Diego run. I signed up for La Jolla and went back to the Carlsbad website. The San Diego registration is currently unavailable. The series boasts that runners and walkers will be enjoying beautiful beach front property for their marathons and half marathons. The events have been going for a long time, at least thirty years. Early registration is the most inexpensive I’ve seen yet with Carlsbad at $80 and La Jolla at $60.

The best part of this series is the charities they are supporting. The Carlsbad website has a page “Run for a Reason” that lists a ton of charities. Many of them I have been working with for a while now including the American Liver Foundation and the American Cancer Society. And guess who they also support? Donate Life. I’m sold.

So, I am announcing that I will be at the Triple Crown events for 2011 and I’m already trying to coerce the team into going. If you would like to join us, please send us an email or leave a comment. I, and hopefully we, will see you there!
