January is here, and we hate to tell you, but it’s time to back away from the Christmas cookies and focus on your wellness plan for the year. If you’re a San Diego meeting planner, or headed to San Diego for your next convention, might we suggest getting your team in gear with a 5K Run/Walk? This outdoor, fitness-focused activity is a wonderful way to re-energize your attendees while showcasing our beautiful city! Here are 5 San Diego Venues for your next Corporate or Non-Profit 5K Run/Walk:
1. Embarcadero Park North
This outdoor venue is walking distance from the San Diego Convention Center, making it an ideal choice for corporate 5K events. Bordering Seaport Village, the course runs alongside San Diego Bay and features picturesque views of magnificent landmarks like the”Kissing Statue” and USS Midway Museum. Why we love it: Close proximity to the Convention Center and Downtown Convention hotels make it possible to hit the snooze button one more time before reporting to the early-morning starting line.
2. De Anza Cove Mission Bay
De Anza Cove is a tranquil park located within Mission Bay. Highlights include easy freeway access, ample parking, covered picnic space, and a winding pathway that is perfect for a San Diego corporate 5K. Why we love it: Peaceful and serene, you won’t even realize you just spent the last 45 minutes exercising.
3. Balboa Park
The nation’s largest urban cultural park, Balboa Park is home to 15 major museums, renowned performing arts venues, beautiful gardens and the San Diego Zoo. Featuring gorgeous architecture and plenty of recreational spaces, Balboa Park is an excellent San Diego 5K venue option. Why we love it: We highly recommend a visit to Balboa Park on any trip to San Diego – you might as well get some exercise while you’re at it.
4. Liberty Station
Offering 28 acres of incredible, historic surroundings at the former Naval Training Center San Diego, Liberty Station encompasses beautifully restored buildings and lush landscapes.
Why we love it: The venue’s enclosed campus makes Liberty Station a safe selection for family-friendly 5Ks.
5. Coronado Tidelands Park
The largest San Diego Bay park, Tidelands Park accommodates events for up to 3,000 guests. Offering picturesque views of the beautiful Coronado Bridge, the park also includes a small beach, recreational fields, picnic areas and plenty of open space for a variety of outdoor activity.
