Third Annual "Run In The Name Of Love" 5K Takes To Carmel Streets


The third annual "Run in the Name of Love" scenic road race and walk is set for Father's Day Sunday, June 16, 2013.  The 5K run begins at 8:30 a.m. at Carmel's historic Sunset Center and follows a coastal path alongside sandy white beaches and the dramatic Pacific Ocean, with a finish celebration at Carmel's Ocean Beach.  Dogs are welcome to participate in the 2K walk/run which travels a similar course following the 5K start.
Unique features of the event are tribute bibs, dog participant shirts and bandanas, biscuits for the dogs when they cross the finish line, free raffle tickets, and medallions for walkers as well.  All runners and walkers are encouraged to run in the name of someone they love, either as a memorial to a loved one or as a tribute to someone who is loved in life. 
Proceeds from the race will benefit the Big Sur Marathon's JUST RUN® youth fitness program and other local youth programs and organizations. For more information and to register please visit
