A classic southern California beach/boardwalk run. San Diego’s fabulous beaches are part of the city’s fabric. There are numerous options for running on the beach. The signature run is the Ocean Front Walk, a paved multi-use path that runs for 3.2 miles from North Pacific Beach to South Mission Beach, paralleling Mission Bay Blvd. It’s a festive scene, with parks, water views, shopping on the side streets, lots of bars & restaurants along the beach, and the Belmont Park amusement park. Great add-on options.
Add-Ons: Many options for a longer run. Can connect to our Mission Bay route, using the small alley roads that connect from the Ocean Front Walk. At the south end, you can connect to the San Diego River Bikeway, and even our Ocean Beach (“OB”)/Sunset Cliffs route. From the north end of the Ocean Front Walk, it’s 1 mile north to Bird Rock and our La Jolla waterfront route.
