U-T California 1020 - Event Completed

The Inaugural U-T California 1020 took place on February 16. The day started out foggy but cleared up just in time for runners and walkers to enjoy the scenic coastal views as they covered the 10 mile course through Del Mar, Solana Beach and Encinitas. Former Eagle Don Felder and his band (which included members from The Eagles, Pink Floyd and The Who!) rocked the Finish Line Concert. Over  $65,000 was raised through the U-T Foundation for the American Cancer Society with an additional $32,500 going to five local non-profits.


Below are links to a few 2014 post race items. Stay tuned for when registration will open for the 2015 U-T California 1020.
