The course began under the world famous “Encinitas” sign on historic Coast Highway 101 in beautiful Encinitas, California. This scenic loop passed south through downtown, past Swami’s temple, along the San Elijo State Beach Campgrounds, by the famous “Cardiff Kook” statue (The Magic Carpet Ride), rose above some of the most popular surf breaks in the world and headed down to Cardiff State Beach and back up to finish  in front of La Paloma Theatre and the Encinitas Sign.

Runners were encouraged to burn off calories for one of the biggest days in American Sports – the Super Bowl. What better way to get ready than with a family morning run to prep for Sunday’s big game! Locals, kids, adults, serious runners and kooks alike participated – for life, for community, for a really fun time.
