If there’s one thing I rave about to everyone I know about where I live, it’s the running paths along the ocean and the perfect weather climate.
It’s the reason why I jump at the opportunity to run every single race I can afford in town (that and the fact I can sleep in my bed and wake up only 30 minutes pre-race time and still make it to the start line).
Case in point? In the past year I’ve run 4 races in Santa Cruz, and I have at least four more on the docket before the end of 2012.
As you can imagine, when I heard about a new race coming to town, what did I do?! Oh, that’s right I signed up for it, immediately. 26.2 with these views? Sign.me.up.
(Who wouldn’t want to run by this?!)
That being said, I’d love to see at least one of you out there on race day who will join me (on at least half this adventure), which is why I’m offering (courtesy of the Surfer’s Path Race) a FREE ENTRY to this inaugural event!
So, if you’re ready to run 13.1 miles on the beautiful coast of Capitola that runs right by steamer’s lane (home to many world class surfers) or run 26.2 miles that includes running by a surfing sweet spot at Cowell’s Cove and up through Wilder Ranch onto the coastal bluffs, then pay attention below.
