Review of Coronado Valentines 10K by Ben Vaughan

Posted by: on January, 5 2012

In it’s inaugural year, the Coronado Valentine’s Day 10K had over 1,500 registered participants and the 2012 race will sell out once it reaches 2,000 runners. As of early January, the event is well over half full and is expected to sell out soon.

This flat and fast course is perfect for everyone. Whether you are pushing your little one in a stroller or racing for the $2,500 prize purse, or somewhere in between, you are sure to have a great time at this event. The course starts and finishes at Tidelands Park in Coronado and winds along the golf course and Glorietta Bay providing beautiful views. The 2012 race has many improvements over the first year and includes:

Great Hotel deals at Hotel Del Coronado and the Coronado Marriott Resort
Chip Timing provided by Eternal Timing with a 5K split in the results
$2,500 in Prize Money
