Run By the Sea returns to lovely Wilder Ranch State Park along this remarkable agricultural tract north of Santa Cruz. Run By the Sea is a unique 12K run or 4K run/walk *and new half marathon!* that meanders along the gorgeous bluffs of the Central Coast, organized by Bike Santa Cruz County. Most of the run is on a flat, packed dirt trail, and overlooks wild rocky shoreline. With stretches along the gorgeous bluffs, through a unique beach crossing, and use of the park trail, no other race is quite like it! Now it its fifth year, Run By The Sea benefits Bike Santa Cruz County--the coordinating organization and Santa Cruz County's only bicycle advocacy organization.
