Del Mar Racing Season

Jul 18 - Sep 7, 2020

San Diego horse racing takes place where the "turf meets the surf" at the Del Mar Racetrack. Fans flock to the track each summer to wager on their favorite horses during the popular, annual Del Mar Racetrack racing season, mid-July - early-September. Be part of the magic and nostalgia of this long-time horse race tradition dating back to 1937 when Bing Crosby greeted the first guests, and Seabiscuit won by a nose in the infamous race in 1938. This season features the nation's top race horses, trainers and jockeys, and plenty of fun in the sun.

The races run five days weekly, except Monday and Tuesday.

Horse racing at Del Mar happens Wednesday through Sunday, with post time for the first race on most days at 2:00 PM. On Fridays first post is 4:00 PM.

Cabrillo Sunset 5K 2020

Jul 25, 2020

The Cabrillo Sunset 5K Fun Run & Walk is a fundraiser in support of the underfunded programs at Cabrillo National Monument.

The route passes the park's most important landmarks before linking with the road down to the tidepools - where participants can enjoy spectacular views as the sun sets below the horizon. The route is entirely paved, but challenging, with a significant incline (200 foot loss/gain) as participants return uphill and back to the Visitors Center. First place winners in Men’s & Woman’s division will qualify for fee entrance in the Americas Finest City (AFC) Half Marathon

Walk, run or cheer! All REGISTERED participants will receive a numbered bib and event T-shirt. Walkers, runners and baby strollers are welcome; this is an event for your entire family.
