Event Update

That’s right, in-person racing is back! As part of the Governor’s message, State of California will be back open after June 15th. So San Diego Track Club is excited to bring back the 67th Balboa Park 8 Miler on August 7, 2021. While the State of California is still finalizing their guidance on COVID protocols, we anticipate the race to operate closer to ‘normal’ than not. This situation is fluid and our event will follow all protocols for race day.
