Registration will take place at Moonlight Beach parking lot and the run takes place along 2nd Street and South Coast Highway 101. The scenic 10k loop will begin at Moonlight Beach, head south to pass below 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.

The 2013 Cardiff Kook Run Award is now on display at the Cardiff Library.
The planners also have specific community goals for the run: 1) Establish a foundation for the Safety and Preservation of the “Magic Carpet Ride” and surrounds; 2) Fund additional P.E. programs at Cardiff Elementary; 3) Assist the community of Cardiff with park-related funding. All proceeds go right back into improving Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
