Enjoy Your Finisher Food Bag

After you cross the finish line, and receive your canned Heart Water, grab a Finisher Food Bag filled with delicious goodies from our partners to help you refuel and celebrate! Snacks will include a refueling organic banana from Jimbo’s, San Diego’s premier organic foods grocer. You’ll also receive one of Jambar’s organic energy bars, now sold in Jimbo’s throughout San Diego County. But wait! There’s more! 🤩 Every Finisher Food Bag includes a delicious and satisfying Dole Mango Fruit Bowl and a bag of artisan crackers from Partner’s Crackers! Enjoy these snacks with a carton of yummy chocolate milk from Hollandia Dairy
