Coming up on Sept. 12 is one of San Diego’s unique athletic experiences. It’s the fun run, walk or bike ride along the Silver Strand shoreline known as Coronado Rotary Club’s “Low Tide Ride & Stride.” This year marks the 23rd annual low tide race which is one of the club’s biggest fundraisers with proceeds going to help support local combat-wounded veterans and first responders.
This event, which is geared towards the entire family, has become an important piece in supporting the local Military Community in and around Coronado. The race is extremely popular and the event has received both the San Diego Military Advisory Council’s Achievement Award and the Armed Services YMCA Admiral St. George Award.
The 5-mile course will start at 8 a.m. on Sunday, Sept 12, at Silver Strand State Beach and finish at North Beach and Sunset Park, Coronado. Included in the registration fee is a long sleeve commemorative T-shirt, electronic timed race bib, and a freshwater bike rinse and chain lubrication at end of the course. Registration can be done on-line at www.lowtideride.com or find more information via phone at 619-312-7465 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
