  • Sweat for a good cause

    Just two hills!

    Every year on the last Sunday in April, we produce a world class half marathon race. It started out as a club event by members who were running in a half marathon sponsored by the La Jolla Town Council some four decades ago. Under the tender loving care of our club, this small local event grew into what it is today: A runner's festival for over 7000 participants every yer! Please visit the Half Marathon site to find out more

  • Giving back to the Community

    Pancakes Anyone?

  • Celebrating our History

    Who's up for a Parade?
