Local 5K & Fun Run Celebrates its Third Year 

The Kaiser Permanente Carmel Valley 5K & Fun Run is excited to announce their third annual event. New this year is their partnership with the Bay Club Carmel Valley, which will serve as the location for the start of the race as well as the host of the popular after party, recently renamed the “Bay Club Bash.” Race Director Katie Wilsey, a Carmel Valley resident and mother of four, expressed her excitement for the partnership, “The Bay Club has been so great for our family and has been such a great supporter of the Carmel Valley community, and so I’m ecstatic about this partnership!”


The 5K & Fun Run will take place on Jan. 24 at 7:30 a.m. The race course will begin and end at 12000 Carmel Country Rd., located directly in front of the Bay Club. The Bay Club Bash will begin immediately after the race and will be held from 8 to 11:30 a.m. The post-party will include sponsor exposition booths, a silent auction, entertainment, jump houses, an award ceremony, and more.

The race raises funds for schools located in Carmel Valley. Racers are given the opportunity to direct a portion of the race proceeds to benefit the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation, Solana Beach Foundation, Torrey Pines High School Foundation, Canyon Crest Academy, Carmel Valley Middle School PTSA, Earl Warren PTSA, Cathedral Catholic High School, Notre Dame Academy, San Diego Jewish Academy, or Del Mar Pines School. Registration for the race is still currently open and sponsorship opportunities are available as well. For information about the race visit www.carmelvalley5k.com.
