Race Information

‚ÄčThe Tony Gwynn 5.5k run and walk is an annual walk/run hosted by AleSmith Brewing Company. The race happens on Father's Day Weekend and pays tribute to Tony Gwynn - a hall of famer, coach, teammate, and Dad.

Nicknamed "Mr. Padre" for his unfaltering commitment to his hometown, Tony is considered one of the best and most consistent hitters in baseball history. The majority of his record breaking hits were targeted to the thin slice of infield between the third baseman and shortstop, which he later dubbed as the "5.5 hole".

Funds raised from this event will forever honor this legend and raise money for the Tony and Alicia Gwynn Foundation.
