Under new ownership headlined by Meb Keflezighi and a team of local runners, the iconic Carlsbad 5000 will take place the weekend of April 6-7, 2019. Known as the World’s Fastest 5K, race weekend promises a fast oceanfront course, healthy competition, and an energetic atmosphere for participants of all ages and paces. The “Party by the Sea” starts after runners cross the finish line and celebrate their achievements in the Pizza Port beer garden with local craft brews, live music, and high fives all around.
The festivities of Carlsbad 5000 race weekend kick off on Saturday with events for everyone in the family. From the expo including an Elite athlete Q&A session, to live music and Pizza Port beers at the after party, the Party by the Sea is a full weekend celebration of community, running, and that SoCal lifestyle. Stay tuned on social for announcements about additional weekend activities and a full schedule of events.
We have a full weekend lined up, and we’d love to spend it with you! Pick up your race bib, goodie bag, and swag at the expo. We’ll have a variety of awesome partners who will have plenty of samples, apparel, equipment and more at the expo on Saturday and Sunday. Carlsbad 5000 merchandise will also be available for purchase at our official merch tent.
