Event Description

Walk, jog or run!  Join us on Harbor Dr. to celebrate MLK weekend in a healthy fashion with a scenic Embarcadero experience!  This 5K Walk / Fun Run celebrates the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his dream to improve the equal participation of all in healthcare, education and workforce development.  We're inspired to help move our community toward a more healthy way of living.  What better way to do that than with the objective of completing a 5k.  Bring your family and friends (human and furry) to the Embarcadero and get moving with us!  See you at the starting line! 

We hope to inspire those who have never taken part in a 5K walk / run, to participate.  This event promotes health, fitness, and a general sense of well-being through a fun and engaging manner.

We encourage you to post your photos on Social Media with #SDMLK5k.
