I’m excited to be back in San Diego and have an opportunity to enjoy this weekend’s events. My friend Caitlin is visiting from Connecticut and I’m excited to show her around!
Here are four events I think are worth checking out:
Fit Foodie 5K (event website)
Saturday, 8:00 am-12:00 pm
I’ve seen several bloggers talking about this event and it definitely looks like a good one! After completing the 5K race, enjoy food demos and tastings, giveaways, and beer and wine tastings. This race takes place Saturday but there will be fun events (such as a cocktail party and yoga and brunch) all weekend long.
Pints and Paddles (event website)
Saturday, 10:00 am
Bring your kayak or paddle board (or rent one on-site) and help raise money for Team River Runner, a nonprofit that helps wounded veterans recover through kayak and paddling programs! After you complete the two-mile paddle around Mission Bay, you’ll get a pint glass to use at the after party where there will be beer on tap, prizes and live music.
It’s The Pits 5th Annual Bark and Brew (event website)
Saturday, 6:00 pm-10:00 pm
Saturday night, stop by Mission Brewery in Gaslamp for a fundraiser for It’s The Pits dog rescue! With food, drinks, raffles and an auction, it’s going to be a fun night. Combine that with dogs also being invited and the event being for a great cause, and it’s definitely an event that’s worth checking out!
Celebration Run San Diego – Half, 10K + Kids Fun Run (event website)
Sunday, 8:00 am-1:00 pm
On Sunday, enjoy the Celebration Run! With a scenic, flat, waterfront course that takes you around Mission Bay, this is definitely going to be a great race! This event starts and ends in Bonita Cove, and your registration fee includes medal and a tech tee. Race day registration is available.
Happy Friday! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
