Wharf to Wharf
Each year on the Fourth Sunday in July, thousands of runners, walkers and fitness folks from across America and around the world return to the scenic shores of Monterey Bay for the annual six-mile run from Santa Cruz to Capitola-by-the-Sea.
Widely acclaimed “The best little road race in California”, this classic beach-party fun-run has it all: fifty live bands, throngs of festive spectators and an opportunity to earn the coveted Wharf to Wharf T-shirt.
