Before the Pacific Beach Holiday Parade begins, there will be an athletic event. This consists of
a 5K run, a 1-mile competitive race, a 1-mile run for children, and a 1-mile run with your leashed dog. Spectators lining the streets will cheer on the athletes in anticipation of the parade.
Location: Garnet Avenue between Bayard and Ingraham Streets and Cass Street between Garnet and Tourmaline Avenues.
