The SoCal 3×5 is a fun opportunity to recognize our dedicated 5K participants who complete a quality trio of 5K events. The series starts in January with the Carlsbad Surf Sun Run 5K featuring an out and back course that passes by the beautiful Buena Vista Lagoon and starts and finishes at The Shoppes at Carlsbad, the same location as the Carlsbad full and half marathon. Next is the La Jolla Shores 5K in April featuring a point-to-point course that starts at the top of La Jolla Shores Drive (near UCSD) and takes runners down to an exciting finishing at the La Jolla Cove sweeping ocean views all along the way. The series finishes in August with the America’s Finest City 5K, featuring a mostly flat loop course in historic and beautiful Balboa Park. All three events feature fun, post-race festivals each complete with a craft beer garden, live entertainment and vendor booths.

To qualify for the SoCal 3×5, simply register for and complete (within each event’s time limit) the Carlsbad Surf Sun Run 5K, the La Jolla Shores 5K and the America’s Finest City 5K in the same calendar year and we’ll take care of the rest! Special commemorative medals will be waiting for all who qualify at the SoCal 3×5 bling bestowment booth located in the America’s Finest City Half Marathon finish line festival.
