As January 1st approaches, the thoughts of New

Year’s resolutions ring through our heads.  What will it be this year?  Lose weight? 

Stop smoking?  Eat

healthier?  Spend more quality time

with the kids?  Why not start the

year out doing something that can help accomplish all those resolutions and


At 10 a.m. on Wednesday Pacifica Runners will be presenting

the April’s Yoga and Pilates Studio New Year’s Day 5k and Kids’ Run.  Runners will start with a warm up

stretch session led by April at the south end of Rockaway Beach (the bottom of

the Linda Mar switchbacks).

This is a run/walk suitable for all levels and all

ages.  There will be 5-year-olds

trying to win it and 50-year-olds happy to walk it.  This run/walk will take you out past Nick’s and along the

ocean.  While we anticipate a

chill, the sun usually warms us along the way (and we will go on rain or shine).  Participants will then continue along the Quarry path

up along Route 1 and out onto the Mori Point path.  At 1.55 miles, they’ll turn around and come back.  This is where you get to root on

other runners/walkers on your way back to the start!  There will be a water stop along the way. 

Prizes, Raffles and Registration

All adult finishers will get a week of free yoga classes at

April’s Yoga and Pilates Studio!

Water will be available post race complements of Fresh and


Kids who

complete the Adult 5k will receive a “5k” toe token to attach their shoelaces

to remember their accomplishment and show it off to others.

Kids will also receive a holiday-inspired goodie bag.

At approximately 10:45am the raffles will be drawn.  Each registered runner will be entered

into the raffle.  These include 2

Geopalz for kids, a gift certificate for a pair of Hoka One One running shoes,

$50 Lole Women’s wear gift certificate, hairbands, runnings socks, Road ID gift

certificates, and Yankx shoelaces among others. 

The kids’ run will start at 11am and is free to all

participants.  Kids who finish the

kids’ run will receive a medal. 

Registration can be done online at www.pacificarunners.webs.com/new-year-5k.  Registration is $3 for member kids, $5

for non-member kids or member adults, and $8 for non-member adults.  Registration fees will increase by $1

the day of the run and starts at 9am that morning.  

Start your New Year off in the right

direction, surrounded by support from family, friends and the community!
