About This Activity

Come to beautiful Dana Point California April 30th 2016 and challenge yourself to a 5K Run you’ll want to come back to year after year.

Starting within the Lantern District, you’ll run through pristine neighborhood streets until dropping down into the breathtaking Dana Point Harbor. Continuing flat along scenic Harbor Drive and the majestic boats at your side, you’ll then take a right turn onto COVE Road and experience a short & steep 18% grade for a ¼ mile…a challenge you’ll appreciate once you’ve crested the top and view the breathtaking vistas of the blue Pacific Ocean! Continuing, the route will be a fast downhill until the last flat ½ mile to the Finish line. We’re confident after finishing, you’ll have a sense of accomplishment with one of the best experiences in a 5K Run yet. Please visit us at the 10th Annual Dana Point Grand Prix Sport & Family Festival.
