About This Activity

Join AleSmith Brewing Company Father’s Day Weekend as we walk/run 5.5 kilometers to pay tribute to Tony Gwynn - a hall of famer, coach, teammate, and Dad. Nicknamed “Mr. Padre” for his unfaltering commitment to his hometown, Tony is considered one of the best and most consistent hitters in baseball history.  He liked to hit balls between the third base and shortstop, which he later dubbed as the “5.5 hole”. Funds raised from this event will kick start a campaign to build a Tony Gwynn Museum which will forever honor this legend and raise money for the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation (TAG).

**Pre-Registration will close Friday, June 19 at 4PM. You may register the morning of the race for an additional $10 per level.
