Virtual Participants Welcome!
Live outside of San Diego or unable to join us on race day? That’s okay, you can still be a part of this great event and support the cause by selecting “Virtual Participant” during the registration process. The Virtual Participant registration fee includes an event shirt that will be mailed in advance. This will allow all virtual participants to wear their event shirt on race day and celebrate in their own special way — we encourage you to wear your official shirt as you walk, run, play, sleep-in, or do something positive for your community. We’d love for you to share your plans and then post photos of yourself wearing your Finish Chelsea’s Run T–shirt on our Facebook page!
Pre-Registration/Packet Pickup Event
Early packet pick-up will be on Wednesday, February 28 from 11a – 6p at Road Runner Sports, 5553 Copley Dr, San Diego, CA 92111. This is REQUIRED for team captains to pick up their team packets. Individual members of teams are not allowed to pick up the team packets; the team captain must do this.
BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE
In our effort to be a green event, we’re asking for your support. Please bring your own reusable water bottle to the event. We’ll have plenty of water distribution/refill locations (as well as cups) throughout the event site and on the course for you to refill your container.
DIRECTIONS TO THE RACE & PARKING:
From Interstate 5 south: Take Sassafras (Airport) exit. Turn left on Laurel heading east to the top of the hill. Look for free and metered street parking near and around the west side of Balboa Park and in available pay lots. From Highway 163 south: Take University exit. Turn right on University, then left on 4th Avenue. Once you near Balboa Park look for street parking. Do not attempt to drive to the race staging area from the east side of Balboa Park, as you will not be able to drive across the Laurel Street Bridge. There is metered street parking on 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Avenues between Upas and Grape. We strongly encourage you to carpool if possible, and allow extra time to walk from your car to the event site.
RIDESHARE ON EVENT DAY
We encourage you to use rideshare on event day! Soon we’ll be partnering with one of the leading rideshare companies to give you a discount for getting to and from the event!.
Additional parking will be available on the east side of Balboa Park in the “Old Naval Hospital” parking lot at Park Boulevard and Presidents Way and in adjacent lots. Complimentary shuttle bus service from these areas will run from 6 to 7 a.m. with pick up from Presidents Way and Park Boulevard. Traffic in the area may be heavy so plan to arrive early and give yourself plenty of time.
