About This Activity

This is the 23rd Annual Red Nose Run Holiday Fun Run! The event includes your choice of a 3k or 5k run along the beautiful Del Mar beach. Participants are encouraged to dress in their best Holiday apparel and a prize will be awarded for best costume.

After the race participants will enjoy a jolly after party at the Poseidon Restaurant with hosted snacks and a cash bar. There will also be opportunity drawings and a live auction with over $5,000 in prizes up for grabs!

Race Background and History -

The Red Nose Run is sponsored annually by the Low and Slow Running Club of Del Mar, which consists of runners of various ages and running abilities, who have been getting together for Saturday morning runs for many years.

In 1992 several members started the Run with one charity, Fresh Start Surgical Gifts . Over the years, the number of runners and the amount of contributions has grown from 35-40 runners and $5,000-$6,000 to over 200 runners and $17,000 in 2012. We have given over $147,000 to Fresh Start over the past 21 years.

In addition, we added the Semper Fi Fund charity in the last seven years; to which the run contributed $72,000.

Since the run is put on by a small group of runners, there is NO OVERHEAD cost and all of the after party food is donated by the Poseidon. After the cost of a few tangible items needed for the run, ALL funds are distributed evenly to these two charities.

The event continues to benefit these deserving non-profit 501(c)3 charities, and over the years, we have raised a total of $219,000.00 for these two important causes.
