About This Activity

The 2015 Brian Waterbury Memorial Rock to Pier Fun Run and Rock’n Around the Pier Half Marathon will take place on Saturday, July 18 with a 7:30 am start time.  2015 marks the 46th running of the Rock to Pier Run and the 4th running of the Half Marathon.

The Brian Waterbury Memorial Rock to Pier Fun Run is a 6 mile beach run from Morro Rock to the Cayucos Pier.  The finish line is at the iconic Cayucos Pier.   This event is open to participants of all ages and abilities.

The Rock’n Around the Pier Half Marathon event begins at Morro Rock, continues to the Cayucos Pier, turn around and head back towards Morro Rock. At 10.5 miles the course will veer off the beach (through soft sand) and will follow a 1 mile loop through a local park returning to the beach (through soft sand) and finish at Morro Rock. Please note that the course will be closed at 10:30 am.    Runners who are not at the Pier by 1 hour 20 minutes will be asked to return to Morro Bay by bus.  This event is open to participants 14 and older.

Parking is limited in Cayucos and all participants for the Rock to Pier Run are encouraged to return to Morro Bay via provided Bus transportation.  There is plenty of parking at Morro Rock and nearby.   Arrive early.

Both Events will begin at 7:30 am.

Event details and schedule

Due to tide conditions, both events will begin at 7:30 am on Saturday, July 18, 2015. There will be a staggered start by pace time and individual gun start for each group. 

For the Half Marathon Runners, the return trip might be a challenge at North Point.   Half Marthon Runners who do not make it the Cayucos Pier by 1 hour 20 minutes will be asked to take the bus back to Morro Bay.  The 1 mile loop off the beach will still be held at the end of the event, to beat the tide.

Packet Pick-up will be held at the Morro Bay Community Center, 1001 Kennedy Way, Morro Bay on Friday July 17 from 4-7 pm.   We encourage participants to pick up packets on Friday evening.   Late pick-ups will be held at Morro Rock from 6:30 am-7:15 am.  on Saturday July 18.
