Pacific Beachfest 5K • Event Details
Pacific Beachfest 5K | San Diego’s Largest Beach Run!
The 9th Annual Pacific Beachfest 5K is BACK and in-person on Saturday October 2, 2021! Join us for San Diego’s largest beach run with this half beach/half boardwalk 5K. All participants receive the always popular tank top (unisex or female sizes), custom finisher’s medal, chip timing and one complimentary from PB Shore Club.
UPDATE (August 29, 2021): Pacific Beachfest 5K is typically hosted as the run that kicks off the festival, Pacific Beachfest. Unfortunately, the 2021 festival will be cancelled due to challenges indirectly related to COVID-19. While the festival is cancelled, the run is still on! Although it’s a little late for us to change the 5K event name, we still plan to deliver a great 5K, fun SWAG with the tank top and medal, and an awesome post-event party at PB Shore Club. We are also partnering with a number of local PB businesses so you can treat yourself to an entire beach day!
While we are sad the festival will not happen in 2021, we are grateful for everyone that still enjoys this super fun 5K and makes a day of supporting all the great local businesses in Pacific Beach. We promise to deliver a memorable day for you at the beach!
