BlogHer 5K Comes to San Diego!

I’m thrilled to announce the details of the BlogHer 5K Fun Run in San Diego!

The BlogHer 5K, now in its third year, will be held on Friday, August 5th, 2011 at 6:30 am. My goal in organizing this event is to give BlogHer conference attendees some time out of the hotel, exploring the city and bonding with other BlogHers through a fun, healthy event. This is not a timed race.

The BlogHer 5K is sponsored by Together Counts, a nationwide program inspiring active and healthy living. The principle behind the program is Energy Balance, which means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we burn. Learn more about Together Counts and their commitment here.

The run will follow the blue route around the Embarcadero North and South Parks, right along the beautiful waterfront.  Check-in begins at 6:00am and will be held in the lobby of the San Diego Marriott Marquis & Marina. From the lobby, we’ll proceed out past the pool and head north on the Embarcadero path. We’ll do the north loop twice, then head to the south loop, then back to the hotel. For a more detailed view, check out Google Maps. (Note: it’s the red route on Google Maps!)

We are looking for some volunteers to be stationed along the path to direct people. If you’re interested, please contact me.

To join us, sign up for the BlogHer 5K here. There is no fee. All we ask is that you are over 18 years old and a registered BlogHer attendee. Bring your enthusiasm and your commitment to being active and healthy!
