The 2019 Carlsbad 5000 is April 6 and 7 in Carlsbad CA

 

Carlsbad is home to a number of premier athletic events, including the Carlsbad 5000 which is reported to be the world’s fastest 5K run, with multiple world and US records set over the years, including current world records for men and women.

 

runnersThis event is now under new ownership and management for 2019 (Ashley Gibson and her company Groundwork Endurance purchased the race in 2018, and well-known local marathoner Meb Keflezighi joined her as a co-owner).

 

You can read more about this exciting change in the most recent Carlsbad magazine.

 

This internationally known and popular race will be held Sunday April 7th, the 34th year, with the Junior Carlsbad on Saturday the 6th!

 

There’s still time to register online.

 

The Carlsbad 5000 weekend, also nicknamed “Party by the Sea” because of all the festivities, is filled with activities and fun for the weekend, with the Junior Carlsbad (the 30th Anniversary) on Saturday; there are multiple races including a diaper dash, toddler trot, and other races up to a mile for kids 7 to 12.

 

Sunday offers the main 5K race with multiple categories of runners, and the All Day 20K!

 

Carlsbad signRace Weekend fun continues with a Health and Fitness Expo in the Village, at the parking lot at Roosevelt and Carlsbad Village Drive, from 8 until 3 on Saturday and again on Sunday beginning at 7 am. You'll find samples, equipment, apparel, and more from multiple vendors.

 

And don’t miss the post-race celebrations on Sunday with live music and more, including 2 free beers from Pizza Port for participants in the beer garden (ages 21 and over with ID).

 

You can expect plenty of participants and spectators, so plan to arrive early to find parking in the Village and along the course to cheer on the runners. Keep in mind that, as with other Carlsbad races, there will be a number of road closures including the Coast Road.

Jeff,

I had no idea whatsoever about the fame of this race, as well as the current world records.  What a great way to get to know Carlsbad.  Happy Tuesday!  A

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS, I learned something new today as I always do in ActiveRain. Who knew the world's fastest 5K was in Carlsbad.

Jeff it is that time of the year for the start of the road races around here as well.  These events are worth supporting because they all raise money for very worthy charities.

I admire those that compete in such events, since I don't think I could work up the desire to do so myself.

It's pretty impressive that this running event has the prestige, and world records, that it does. I am not a runer but I certainly admire those who can run these sorts of events, and so fast!

Hi Beth Atalay 

I was impressed when I first learned this, and the website for the new owner talks more about the history of this event, and the record holders. All this in our little town!!

I'm always glad to see events like this that raise funds for different charities.  So will you be participating in any of the events in your area?

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  - the weather at this time of year is normally pretty nice. It might be gray in the morning with the marine layer, but that's not a bad thing for runners. And you can't beat the scenery along the ocean!!
