This flat, fast and fun course at the waterfront park in Liberty Station is a great way to get some fresh air and exercise with family and friends before Super Bowl festivities in the afternoon.

Runners and walkers of all ages are invited to join – even (leashed) four-legged friends. The Pointer mascot will be onsite to keep adults, kids and canines company as they run along the water and loop past the USS Recruit. The USATF Certified and Sanctioned Course draws competitors of all levels from the San Diego area racing community to casual first-timers from around the city. Every registrant will receive a high-performance Hungry Dog Dash t-shirt, goodie bag and dog tags. Finish line festivities include live music, awards for the top three finishers in each division, awards for top male and female runners and a community vendor village.

All proceeds from the event go to the PLHS PA-XC Boosters to support the PLHS Cross Country team. Funding is needed to finance the team’s dedicated distance runners as they compete around California. Money raised will go toward travel expenses, registration fees, uniforms and equipment costs. In addition to physical benefits, distance running with a team improves mental health, reduces stress, improves sleep quality, develops mental toughness, builds relationships and teamwork skills.
