The Cardiff Kook Run in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA On Superbowl Sunday February 5th!

 

Cardiff Kook RUn in Cardiff by the Sea, CA

 

The 1st Annual Cardiff Kook Run will be held on Sunday February 5, 2012.

 

The 5K and 10K run is named after none other than the infamous surfing statue in Cardiff on the Coast Highway, the Cardiff Kook (named the “Magic Carpet Ride” by the sculptor).

 

Cardiff Kook RUn in Cardiff by the Sea, CAThe Kook, as it is affectionately called has created quite a stir over the years for the numerous and varied costumes it adorns at holidays and for special events. There is a Cardiff Kook website where you can enjoy the Kook at its best, including a ton of photos, and there is even now a Kook’s Café in Cardiff (formerly the Beach City Café)

 

The Cardiff Kook Run is sure to attract some great athletes but also should be quite a bit of fun, even if you are just watching. No doubt a bunch of runners will be in costume in honor of the Cardiff Kook. There is even a costume contest!

 

The 10K race begins at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas and heads down the coast through Encinitas, past the Cardiff Kook, to a turn-around at Cardiff State Beach and back. The 5K is a portion of this course.

 

You can still register on-line for the Cardiff Kook Run.

 

The Cardiff Kook Run begins at 8:30 am so you will finish in plenty of time to enjoy the Superbowl!

Jeff hope this will have a great turn out, now I know this would be poorly attended if it was on the East Coast, due to the larger Super Bowl Fan Base:))

Hi Jeff, Little did the city of Carlsbad know how all this would turn out. There was such an outpouring of dissatisfaction at first the statue that tuned this statue into a true city icon and has provided many with a wonderful way of expressing their community spirit. Who'd a thunk it.

Endre - well it IS early enough so folks could still get ready for their Bowl parties! I will be out of town otherwise I would definitely be there to take some pics (I am NOT a runner)

William - actually it's Cardiff! LOL. But you are right. This thing has become viral. It's fascinating to watch all that revolves around that statue

Jeff,  I admire you for all the local events you post.  The Cardiff Kook Run will undoubtedly be a great event.  I believe it will be well attended even if it does take place on Super Bowl Sunday.
