San Diego Fire Rescue 5k & Kids Run
To kick off Fire Prevention Week, the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation holds an annual 5K Run/Walk & Kids Run. The run not only allows San Diegans to have fun running with local firefighters but it also raises much needed funds for the foundation. The money helps support their mission of providing enhanced equipment, training, and to support their community education program.
The San Diego Fire Rescue 5K & Kids Run is for everyone and offers several divisions including: 5K Run/Walk, 5K Run/Walk Stroller Division, 5K Public Safety Division, 1-mile Kids Run and a 100 meter Sparky Sprint.
Firefighters will run along with participants and meet them at the finish line to hand out finisher's medals.
Families, the community and race participants can also enjoy the interactive Fire Safety Expo. The Expo features firefighter demonstrations, SDFD specialty divisions including Bomb Squad, Hazmat and Heavy Rescue. Also present will be Sparky the Fire Dog, San Diego Project Heart Beat, CERT San Diego, San Diego Lifeguards, SDG&E Fire Safety House and more.
Entry fee includes: race shirt, drawstring goodie bag, custom finisher's medal, access to the safety expo and beer garden (21+). Individuals, families, and kids are welcomed participants. Awards will be presented for first place male and female in each division!
