On Sunday, February 2, from 7:30-11am, get your “kook on” and enjoy world-class views while burning off the calories before the Super Bowl snacking begins. The Cardiff Kook Run was created to promote healthy living while giving back to the community. All proceeds from the event will go directly into improving Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
The Cardiff Kook Run 10K & 5K is a celebration of the greatest town on the map — on the greatest day of the year, Super Bowl Sunday. The scenic 10K loop will begin at Moonlight Beach, pass under the famous Cardiff Kook along the 101, rise above some of the most popular surf breaks in San Diego, and then make its way down to Cardiff State Beach. Then you get to experience it all again on your way back. For public safety, the 5K turnaround is north of the “Cardiff Kook”, and will not run past the “Cardiff Kook” due to train & traffic crossing at Chesterfield Drive and Coast Highway 101.
The Cardiff Kook Run is the creation of Steve Lebherz and Seth Brewer, two locals who have been running this particular route for 15 years. Lebherz and Brewer have specific community goals for the run: 1) Establish a foundation for the safety and preservation of the “Magic Carpet Ride” and surrounds; 2) assist The One Fund Boston 3) help fund Cardiff 101 MainStreet programs.
