Wow! What an opening week for San Diego Track Club’s 62nd Annual Balboa Park 8 Miler!
Registration opened up for San Diego’s longest consecutively run race last Tuesday and we have already had over 500 people lock up their spot for the 2016 8 mile race.
HP Movement is now entering our fourth year of directing the 8 Miler and each year this is absolutely one of our favorite events to direct. The race has so much history in Balboa Park and also provides all the runners with a unique running tour through Balboa Park. Between the Organ Pavilion, San Diego Hall of Champions, Museum of Man, Cabrillo Bridge, 6th Avenue, San Diego Zoo, the Bridle Trail and more, the course is jam packed with beautiful scenery!
But what excites me most about this race is that so many runners share the same enthusiasm for the event that we do and the numbers don’t lie! Last year’s 8 Miler sold out almost two months prior to race day and with the amazing first week we are expecting more of the same for 2016!
