It is time to lace up your sneakers once again and get ready to run! The Strawberry Festival Run has something for everyone: the elite runner, the run-walker, kids, and more.
The Strawberry Festival Run starts with a 10k and a 5k Historic Downtown Vista, runs through Vista’s Kite Sculptures, and ends at the Vista Strawberry Festival. All runners receive a performance t-shirt, a custom medal, a goodie bag, fresh fruit at the finish line and, for those runners 21 and over, a free beer in our beer garden! We have CASH prizes for our 3 fastest male and female runners for the 10k and 5k (1st – $500; 2nd – $250; 3rd – $100). For kids 12 and younger, there is a 1-mile run. For kids 5 and younger, there is a 1/4 mile dash. Fun for the whole family. All courses are stroller friendly, however, dogs are prohibited in the run. The 10k starts at 6:45 a.m. If you have any questions, email us here. Online registration closes Friday night, May 25 at midnight. You can still register in person at Packet Pick-up on Saturday or at the Start Line on Sunday. Click “Race Info” for details.
